August 26, 2008

Easy to tell school's back in session, huh? It'll take a little while for me to get back in the swing of things, but bear with me, 'K?

As the Franklin Public Library's Summer Reading Program winds to a close on the 31st, I'll be reading John O'Hara's Appointment in Samarra as my final book.

Don't forget, Justin Parson is playing a free show at Clarion University's Venango Campus tonight from 7:30 - 9 pm in Rhoades Center (middle building to the left of main drive). No cover.

Congrats to the Mercer County Bach Society, the Greenville Symphony Society, the Mercer County Historical Society and the Valley Lyric opera all of whom received grants from the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts
