November Children's Events

Greetings all!

Longtime, no chat. Things have been a little crazy, both around the Odyssey and at home. For those of you who don't know, I now am also a full-time grad student, as well as a the full-time Odyssey Children's Department Manager. That means I no longer sleep and eat only one meal a day, in my car, as I drive between work and class. (That's mostly a joke. Mostly.)

Regardless, November is the Odyssey's 45th anniversary month! To celebrate, the Odyssey has some incredible authors lined up (including the unbelievable Stephen King/Richard Russo pairing this Thursday, November 6th!).

Here's the children's line-up:

Saturday, November 8th 11 AM
Storytime with Carol Weis
Author of
When the Cows Got Loose!

Carol is absolutely hysterical and brings lots of cow memorabilia with her. All ages are welcome for this picture book storytime event.

Saturday, November 15th
