The Book of Lost Things

I’m telling you, now…, Get Excited

A.) The Library will be open, again!, so soon!

B.) And, for this post’s sake, more importantly, we will soon have our Kick Off Party for this year’s Ferndale Reads Program, featuring John Connolly’s The Book of Lost Things.

Now, for those who remember, last year, the FPL spearheaded a string of literary events hosted by various businesses, groups, collectives and citizens situated throughout Ferndale, centering around Dashiell Hammett’s The Maltese Falcon.

For those of you new to this–> Think: City-wide book club.

We provide you with the “book” (400 copies recently arrived at our door step) – you read through it and get “lost” …lost inside the fantastic, curious, dangerous and thought-provoking world of the Book of Lost Things. Then, come out around town (either to the Library, to Go! Comedy, to AJ’s Cafe, The Emory, Treat Dreams or other locales) – acquaint yourselves with fellow book enthusiasts (and library patrons) and share your perspectives on the book. Or… simply share your own nuanced proclivities related to the noble hobby / mind-expanding pursuit… of READING.

Acquaint yourself with The Book of Lost Things


The Kick Off will be an open mic night, on March 3rd, hosted at the Library.

And please stay tuned for information regarding our re-opening… (for those just joining us, we’ve been closed for eight weeks while recovering from extensive flood damage) – Our drywall is restored, and our new carpeting, as of this week is quite close to being completely installed.
