Library annual fundraiser fast approaching
Friends of the Dripping Springs Community Library will host its 9th Annual Pouring Over Books, on Sunday Feb. 23, from 3 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. at the Prospect House, 12745 Silver Creek Road. Funds raised will benefit the Dripping Springs Community Library.
The press release states, “Celebrate the good life with fine wines luxury teas, and delicious bites, and a silent auction while enjoying live music from The Hill Country Ramblers.”
This year’s guest speaker will be Texas Hill Country author Ben Rehder. “He is the Edgar nominated author of the Blanco County series featuring the exploits of John Marlin, a game warden who reluctantly gets drawn into homicide investigations… The 12-book series is also a humorous look at the hunting culture of Texas, in a satiric, madcap style akin to Carl Hiaasen’s.”
Rehder has also written six books in the “Roy Ballard” series, which follow the adventures of a freelance videographer with a knack for catching insurance cheats.
“I want to thank the event’s founding underwriters, Scott Daves of Stanberry Associates and Gavin Loftus of Edward Jones,” John Hoag, President of the Friends of the Dripping Springs Library, said. “Their ongoing support ensures the success of this popular literary event.”
“I also want to thank the generosity of local businesses and individuals who have donated marvelous items for our silent auction,” Hoag said. “This event would not be possible without the many community sponsors who show their support of their community library.”
