Some Hints on Writing Your Memoirs from “Library Guy” Bill Peak

On Monday, July 15, at 6:00 p.m., in the Easton branch of the Talbot County Free Library, “library guy” and author Bill Peak will share some of the tricks he uses to turn memories into stories people actually want to read.

Learn how memory’s weaknesses can actually strengthen your storytelling.  Find out which of the senses has been shown to stimulate memories better than any other.   Discover the ways in which you can investigate a memory to add flavor to your writing.

In addition to serving as the Talbot County Free Library’s communications manager, Peak is the author of “The Oblate’s Confession,” a novel that won four national awards and was named to Kirkus Review’s Best Books of 2015 list.  Memory, its uses and flaws, is a sub-theme of the book.

“The Sky is NOT the Limit!” Children to Learn about the Stars at the Easton Library

On Thursday, July 18, at 10:30 a.m., in the Easton branch of the Talbot County Free Library, children of all ages will have the chance to reach for the stars and explore the universe beyond.

Before telescopes, people looked at the stars and dreamed.  They told stories, drew pictures, and imagined how the stars came to exist in the night sky.  Participants will learn the stories of the stars as told by the ancients … and those told by modern science.  They will travel across the world and back in time to develop their understanding and decide where the stars came from and what lies beyond them.

Dr. Michael Cone

On Thursday, July 18, at 6:30 p.m., in the Easton branch of the Talbot County Free Library, Dr. Michael Cone will give a talk on what may very well have been the most important battle of the Civil War.  Using photos from the battlefield and first-hand accounts of those that found themselves in the thick of things, Cone will tell the story of three days that changed the course of American history.  As an added bonus, he will also provide tips on how to find your civil war ancestor.

Cone is a retired physician who specialized in neonatal care.  A graduate of Baylor University and Louisiana State University School of Medicine, he now spends his time at his home off Dixon Creek, enjoying life as an avid amateur civil war historian and genealogist.
