Dress as your favorite "Harry Potter" character and you could in a prize for best costume when the library hosts a Harry Potter Costume Party in the large meeting room 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. July 21. The party, which includes a reading by KUWS station manager John Munson, celebrates the last installment in the Harry Potter series, "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows." There will be a random drawing for a free copy of the book too.
We are excited that Superior resident Ellen Baker has a novel published by Random House being released Tuesday. The title is "Keeping the House," set in 1950s Wisconsin. There will be a kick-off celebration at 8 p.m. today at the Bong Heritage Center hosted by J.W. Beecroft bookstore. The new novel has garnered advance praise from authors Fannie Flagg and Jacquelyn Mitchard.
