New Programs at Faulk Central Library!

The Faulk Central Library is gearing up to offer a new selection of free events and programs on the second floor. Keep an eye on our web site for information about upcoming author visits, dance lessons, computer classes, book clubs, and musicians.

Two upcoming events feature authors who set their novels right here in Austin:

JoAnna Barrett, author of The Men’s Guide to the Women’s Bathroom, will visit on Wednesday, May 23rd at 7:00 p.m. According to Ms. Barrett’s web site, the book started out as a “non-fiction look at the social evolution of women’s bathrooms since the Industrial Revolution” but evolved into a novel that has been optioned by CBS and Paramount Studios.

Karen Olsson will be here June 18th to discuss her novel Waterloo with the newly founded Downtown Book Club, which will meet on the third Monday every other month from noon to 1:00 p.m.

A few nonfiction titles to provide some background to these novels are:

The Book of the Bath

Fifty Years of the Texas Observer

Once Upon a Time in Texas: a Liberal in the Lone Star State

If you have any suggestions for programs, leave us a comment here, stop by the second floor reference desk, or contact us through Ask a Librarian.
