New Books for Boys K-8 discussion for parents and educators
Thursday, February 28th, 2008
Noel Wien Library Auditorium (on Cowles)
Deborah Ford(international speaker and award winning media specialist) discusses books boys will read; books that are funny, action packed, trivia filled or gross. You'll receive a handout of the books.
This is for parents and educators, but thought I'd post it anyway since it will serve our young boys out there. Books can be more exciting than an xbox game - really!!

Apples to Apples Tournament! Sunday, February 24th, 2008 5:00pm - 7:00pm College Coffee House (College & University)
If you haven't played Apples to Apples Game yet, you must. It's a card game of "hilarious comparisons". There will be a tournament with prizes. It's a great family game, and one of the most popular, fastest growing games available. There will be a tournament every Sunday 'til March 30th. I would guess this is probably for ages 8 up to adult. There is a Junior version available in the stores, but I don't think they're playing that one in the tourney. 374-0468 or visit the Coffee House for more info.
