By Dawn Anderson

Mother-Daughter Book Club Workshop

Join local author Cindy Hudson for this hands-on presentation to help you determine who to invite, where to meet, how to run the meeting, how to choose the books, and how to keep your mother-daughter book club vibrant for years. Cedar Mill Library upstairs meeting room, Sunday, May 2, 2:00-3:30 pm. Recommended for parents and children aged 8 and up. No registration required.

Blame it on the Bossa Nova!

It “swings so cool and sways so gentle...” That’s the charm and flair of Brazilian rhythms performed by local singer-songwriter & guitarist Ronnie Robins. Known around the Portland metro area for his warm and cadenced stylings of bossa nova, samba and jazz, as well as his original vocals, Robins will perform on the Cedar Mill Library’s main floor on Friday May 7. Sit and enjoy the performance or sway to the music as you browse the stacks. The music begins at 6:45 pm.
