Check out our upcoming events!
We're excited to partner with London's Ultimate Catering for a summer evening of wine and small bites. Food is complimentary until it runs out. And it's Wednesday, that means $5 glass pours of our 2013 Tempranillo; not to mention 2 new releases available to try - 2013 Aquila red blend and 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon. It's going to be a great evening at the winery!
Join us for book club in August. I am so excited to talk to everyone about this book. I read it a few months ago, but it stays with me like it was just last week. See you in August!
Synopsis: Tara Westover was 17 the first time she set foot in a classroom. Born to survivalists in the mountains of Idaho, she prepared for the end of the world by stockpiling home-canned peaches and sleeping with her "head-for-the-hills bag". In the summer she stewed herbs for her mother, a midwife and healer, and in the winter she salvaged in her father's junkyard.
Her father forbade hospitals, so Tara never saw a doctor or nurse. Gashes and concussions, even burns from explosions, were all treated at home with herbalism. The family was so isolated from mainstream society that there was no one to ensure the children received an education and no one to intervene when one of Tara's older brothers became violent.
Then, lacking any formal education, Tara began to educate herself. She taught herself enough mathematics and grammar to be admitted to Brigham Young University, where she studied history, learning for the first time about important world events like the Holocaust and the civil rights movement. Her quest for knowledge transformed her, taking her over oceans and across continents, to Harvard and to Cambridge. Only then would she wonder if she'd traveled too far, if there was still a way home.
Educated is an account of the struggle for self-invention. It is a tale of fierce family loyalty and of the grief that comes with severing the closest of ties. With the acute insight that distinguishes all great writers, Westover has crafted a universal coming-of-age story that gets to the heart of what an education is and what it offers: the perspective to see one's life through new eyes and the will to change it.
What’s summer without a Summer Soiree? On August 15th, with the help of Liberty Lake Wine Cellars, we plan to raise more than just the roof in our continuing support of our Library. There will be competition in the form of lawn games, plus desserts, drinks, and an evening of fun! Registration for the games will be at the Soiree and thanks to our generous businesses, there will be prizes for the victors. Tickets are only $20 and can be purchased at the Liberty Lake Municipal Library and Liberty Lake Wine Cellar. The Soiree takes place on August 15th at the Liberty Lake Wine Cellars, 23110 E. Knox Ave., from 6 – 8:30 PM. Non-alcoholic beverages will be available.
August's 1st Friday brings us a new featured Artist, Christina Hull, and her bright and cheery paintings. Local favorite, Mark Ward, provides us with entertainment for the evening. Music starts at 5 but come early to grab a seat. Bring a picnic and make it an evening!
Synopsis: A resident of one of LA's toughest neighborhoods uses his blistering intellect to solve the crimes the LAPD ignores.
East Long Beach. The LAPD is barely keeping up with the neighborhood's high crime rate. Murders go unsolved, lost children unrecovered. But someone from the neighborhood has taken it upon himself to help solve the cases the police can't or won't touch.
They call him IQ. He's a loner and a high school dropout, his unassuming nature disguising a relentless determination and a fierce intelligence. He charges his clients whatever they can afford, which might be a set of tires or a homemade casserole. To get by, he's forced to take on clients that can pay.
This time, it's a rap mogul whose life is in danger. As Isaiah investigates, he encounters a vengeful ex-wife, a crew of notorious cutthroats, a monstrous attack dog, and a hit man who even other hit men say is a lunatic. The deeper Isaiah digs, the more far reaching and dangerous the case becomes.
