Dark and Stormy Night Mystery Series
It is in October when dead things whisper and demand to be heard. Once summer's raucous din has died away, it is easier to hear the small sounds: the messages encoded in the brittle scrapings of withered leaves and insect husks, the mysteries alluded to by the wind as it slides through the eaves, the musical rattle of dried-out seeds in the hardened shells of gourds, so reminiscent of the rattling of very old bones.
Listen close: they're trying to tell you something...
It is in response to this need to communicate with the quiet and the dead that we turn to the mysterious when we seek entertainment. This year, Driftwood Public Library is proud to announce its sixth annual Dark and Stormy Night mystery series, in which 5 Northwest authors- masters of the mysterious- will visit the library and talk to readers about their craft.
As in previous years, these presentations will take place at 4:00 p.m. every Thursday afternoon in October in the Library’s Reading Room.
This year’s series is made possible by the generous support of The Driftwood Public Library Foundation, Chinook Winds Casino and Resort, Blackfish Café and Mossy Creek Pottery. In addition to the author visits, the series will be fleshed out with a mystery-writing contest, the details of which will be announced shortly (official rules for the contest can be picked up at Driftwood after September 15th.)
As with all events at the library, this series is absolutely free of charge and open to the public. Driftwood Public Library is located at 801 SW Highway 101 on the second floor of the City Hall building adjacent to Price and Pride grocery store.
