Author to Visit Meade Public Library

Meade Public Library will be hosting the author, Samuel Hall, at our library this coming Saturday afternoon (November 7) at 2:00 p.m.  Samuel Hall has roots in the Oklahoma Panhandle, and he will be discussing his debut book Daughter of the Cimarron.  This is the fictionalized tale of his mother as she and her husband went from ragtime to breadlines, from the silent cities and melancholy towns to a dugout overlooking the Cimarron Canyon, from brokenness to strength.  This book is Christian Fiction.  Refreshments will be served following his presentation.  Plains Community Library is a co-sponsor of this event.

Take a look at Samuel Hall’s website to learn a little more:   Samuel Hall 

Other events taking place this week are:  Story Time on Tuesday morning (November 3) at 10:00 a.m.  The theme of the day is “Scarecrows.”  Join us for fun stories, activities and crafts — all about scarecrows.
