Community Novel: Meet the Author

author photoThe Tomball Library’s first community novel, Air Within a Jade, is still going strong with 11 chapters now released on the Tomball Tales website. Also on that website are short author bios to introduce readers to each of the contributing writers. This week’s chapter was written by CS Sandlin, who shared the following:

There is generally a gentle sound of canine snoring underfoot while CS is working. Ergo, coffee. The tension between sleep and caffeine forms the backbone of CS’s writing, along with frequent walks through Mercer Arboretum to enjoy the Texas sunshine (or Texas cloudiness, especially in the summer).

A poet and short story writer, CS maintains a blog at Moon Pools and Mermaids for current projects and inspirations, and is currently working on a novel.

Thanks to CS for her chapter, as well as to all of the authors participating in the community novel!

So You Bought an Instant Pot… Now What? [15 and Adult] - Wednesday, September 5th at 7:00 PM

The Instant Pot is a “Smart Multi-Use, Programmable Pressure Cooker…” that makes meals quickly (https://instantpot.com/).

It was one of the top selling items sold on Prime Day in July.

If you bought one and it’s still in the box, you may be asking yourself, “Now what?”

Join us on Wednesday, September 5th in the Library Community Room at 7 PM as we demystify preconceived notions and any myths about these instapot cookers as well as guide you through the basics and verbiage used to cook in one of these nifty units.
