Story times: The Boise Public Library and the Meridian Library District offer many story programs for children of all ages. Go to their websites, www.boisepubliclibrary.org or www.mld.org, and click on the calendar to check out the classes.
Morning Book Club: Tuesday, May 5, 10:30 a.m., Meridian Library District, Cherry Lane.
Adult Writing Workshop: Tuesday, May 5, 7 p.m., Boise Public Library, main branch.
Boise Bookmarks: Friday, May 8, 3:30 p.m. Boise Public Library, main branch. Teens: If you are passionate about books and reading, are in seventh to 12th grade, and live in the Boise area, the Boise Bookmarks are looking for you. We’re not your average book club — we don’t all read the same book and discuss it. Instead, we all read whatever we want and tell each other about the books. You’ll leave with a ton of titles to add to your TBR pile and meet teens from all over the city.
Literature for Lunch: “The Cat’s Table” by Michael Ondaatje, Friday, May 8, 12:10 p.m., Boise Public Library, main branch.
Saturday Storytime: “Mom School” and “How to Babysit a Grandma,” Saturday, May 9, 11 a.m., Barnes & Noble, Boise.
Anita Tanner at the Saturday market: Saturday, May 9, 11 a.m., Rediscovered Books, Boise. Local poet Anita Tanner will sign copies of her book of poems, “Where Fields Have Been Planted.” This collection of Western poetry evokes imagery from the Idaho landscape and rural life on the frontier.
Teen Writers Room: Saturday, May 9, 1 p.m., Boise Public Library, main branch. If you are 12-17 and love to write, you now have your own space in the library once a week. Join other writers in the Gates Room for a drop-in, nonfacilitated room of your own. We’ll provide writing prompts if you need inspiration, or you can work on existing projects. It’s your space and your time.
