FOLK annual meeting, book club (Jan. 25)

WHEN: 10 a.m., Tuesday, Jan. 25

The Friends of the Library, Kona holds its Annual Meeting on the lanai of the Kailua Kona Library followed by a short reception with refreshments. Current FOLK members are encouraged to attend as well as those interested in becoming members.

Following the reception, the Kona Library Book Club will meet at approximately noon. This meeting date is a change from the usual third Tuesday of the month due to the library closure for Martin Luther King Day.

The book for this month is “The Forest Lover” by Susan Vreeland. Based on the courageous life and career of Canadian artist Emily Carr who travelled into the isolated areas of British Columbia in the early 1900’s to paint and capture the art and artifacts of the indigenous people before their traditions died out and industrialization changed them forever.

New members are welcome. February’s selection will be “Cutting for Stone” by Abraham Verghese.
