Canyon Lake Reads events
The Friends of Tye Preston Memorial Library at Canyon Lake invites the community to join them for the second bi-annual Canyon Lake Reads. This year’s book is Ron Rozelle’s The Windows of Heaven, a historic novel about the hurricane that demolished Galveston in 1900.
About a dozen events, all free and open to the public, are scheduled for March, including a screening of a film about the storm, meet the author event, a program by the Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word, a panel discussion on natural disaster preparations, presentations on weather forecasting, a cooking demonstration, and a concert.
Throughout the month, photos from the Galveston and Texas History Museum of the Rosenberg Library, which depict the storm and its devastation, will be on exhibit in the library.
A Grand Finale Dinner with limited seating is scheduled for Thursday, March 27. The dinner is the only event requiring tickets, which are $12 per person and must be reserved in advance.
A full schedule is available at the library or online at www.tpml.org/canyon-lake-reads-2014. Books may be checked out at the library and are also available for purchase at the Friends of TPML Bookstore in the library.
Tye Preston Memorial Library is located at 16311 South Access Road, Canyon Lake, and is open from 9 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday and from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Friday and Saturday.
