We All Have a Story to Tell

http://www.hcpl.net/sites/default/files/23699575.jpgEveryone is invited to the Barbara Bush Branch Library Journaling Group this Monday at 3:30pm. The group is for beginners who are interested in putting themselves on paper. Participants write a few pages each time in response to suggested prompts, and share if they wish in an informal setting.

If you can’t make it this Monday, then don’t worry. The group meets on the third Monday each month. There’s no registration, so just come.
