NORTH WEBSTER — Do you enjoy writing creatively? Looking for an opportunity to share your writings? Then join Writer’s Corner held at 10 a.m. the third Monday each month at North Webster Community Public Library. A writing assignment is given each month. At the Feb. 20 meeting, members will share short stories they have written set in their favorite historical period. You don’t have to be an accomplished writer to enjoy Writer’s Corner, just someone who likes to write. By sharing with other writers, members gain constructive feedback on their work and encouragement. Anyone interested is welcome to attend the Feb. 20 meeting and see what it’s all about.
Also at 5:30 p.m. Monday, Feb. 20, R.E.A.D. Book Club will meet to discuss “The Reluctant Fundamentalist” by Mohsin Hamid.

Next month, the book club will read and discuss “Anathema”, an Amish romance mystery novel by Colleen Coble set in Parke County, Indiana. Stop by the library to pick up a copy and join the March discussion.
