Celebrate National Library Week and "Create your own story" @ the Buena Park Library, April 10-16, 2011

The Buena Park Library District is celebrating National Library Week by inviting members of the community to “Tell Your Story” on Saturday, April 16, 2011. Beginning at 2 pm, the Toastmasters of Buena Park and interested members of the community will take to the stage and share their family’s journey to America. This is one of several planned Buena Park Reads Together events at the Buena Park Library, located at 7150 La Palma Ave., Buena Park, CA.

Libraries are places for new beginnings. Whether you are getting your first library card, learning new computer skills or planning a trip, the library is the place where your story begins. This National Library Week, join our nation’s libraries and librarians and “Create your own story @ your library.”

The Buena Park Library has many resources for anyone looking to start the next chapter in their life’s story, searching for a new job, needing help with their homework, and, of course, books to expand the horizons of your dreams. Best of all, it’s all free at your library!

We all have a story to tell, and the Buena Park Library can help you tell it or to create a new one!

Author Talk and Book Signing by Jeri Westerson at the Buena Park Library

Jeri Westerson, author of the “Crispin Guest” medieval noir mystery series, will be discussing her novels and her love of medieval history at the Buena Park Library on Thursday, April 7, 2011 at 6:30 pm.

The character in her books is Crispin Guest, a disgraced knight turned private investigator, who solves crimes on the mean streets of fourteenth century London. He was created to be a conceptual marriage between medieval mystery and hard-boiled detective fiction. The Boston Globe called her detective, “A medieval Sam Spade, a tough guy who operates according to his own moral compass…. [her books] are pure fun.”

Westerson is on the board of directors for the Southern California chapter of Mystery Writers of America and is president of the Orange County chapter of Sisters in Crime. Before becoming a novelist she worked in a bevy of careers, including graphic artist, theology teacher, tasting host and tour guide for a winery, and a newspaper reporter. She currently lives in Southern California and is married to a commercial photographer. She also shares her home with two cats, a tortoise, and the occasional tarantula.

The titles of her books are: Veil of Lies, Serpent in the Thorns, and The Demon’s Parchment. Autographed copies of these titles will be available to purchase at the event. The fourth Crispin Guest mystery, Troubled Bones, will be released in October 2011.

This author talk and book signing is free and open to the public.
