Nicole, owner of Red Canoe Bookstore Cafe, writes:

Thursday 5:00 p.m. 4/22 night join us for the first in a series of events to bring books, art and community together.

Meet illustrator Susan Detwiler, Panda's Earthquake Escape, and spend an evening sketching with area art teacher Susan Brightman. All completed sketches will be sent to the Wings of Hope orphanage in Haiti. The children there have been making drawings for us, too, although they haven't arrived quite yet.

As always, here at Red Canoe Bookstore Cafe you will eat well, drink the best local small batch roastery coffee, find all your neighbors, and have a good moment of peace in the garden.
