Bookhouse would like to introduce you to the Friends of the EMPL and their cultural activities. The Friends, a not-for-profit organization, is best known for their giant Annual June Book Sale. This past Spring they featured workshops such as Scratching on Paper, a Writers Workshop with Betsy Jackson and a Watercolor for Adult class.
Upcoming Friends events for this year include a dramatic presentation of “Legend of Sleepy Hollow” and a bus trip to New York City in November. Click here for 2012 cultural events schedule.
The Bookhouse is not affiliated with the Friends of EMPL but is pleased to present a wonderful friend to our community.”
