Fox Cities Book Festival 2015

“Clearly, one must read every good book at least once every ten years.”

C.S. Lewis.

The Fox Cities Book Festival is currently under way.  The purpose of the festival is to connect authors and writers with readers.  Schools and libraries all across the Fox Cities in Wisconsin are involved with the festival.

Since my brother wrote a book, I’ve developed a more intense interest in reading and writing books, and hope to attend at least one of the festival presentations in part just to see what it is like.

In this area, our local libraries can be a powerful resource.  Borrowing a book is as easy as browsing the internet, and clicking the “place hold” button.  If the book cannot be found in the local area library system, they will often do an inter-library loan.  For example, they have gotten theological books for me all the way from Concordia University’s library in Mequon, Wisconsin.  All one needs to do is make an online request.

The Lord wants us to always learn and grow.  Good books can help us do that.
