So… What Are You Doing Saturday?


(Gene Stratton Porter)

We here at Bibliophilopolis received the following invitation yesterday:


Bookmamas and the Irvington Library invite all of the Bibliophilopolis readers to a 150th birthday party for Indiana author and environmental movement leader Gene Stratton Porter on Saturday, August 17 at 1:30 at the Irvington branch library, 5625 East Washington. Hear a biographer speak about Gene, watch a DVD of her life and contributions and eat birthday cake! No reservations needed. 275-4500.”

So, if you’re in the Indianapolis area, why not stop by the library (pictured below) Saturday to learn more about this remarkable woman?


Also be sure to stop by Bookmamas Book Store – just a couple blocks away – for some book browsing & buying  🙂
