Coming to the library: Vikki Claflin talk, more at Hood River Library

Local author Vikki Claflin will give a talk on her latest novel at the Hood River Library on Saturday, Aug. 13 at 2 p.m.

Claflin is an author, humorist, and professional public speaker. Her passion is helping women aged 50 and over find the funny in midlife. Claflin helps women learn to laugh at life, and at themselves, and how to navigate the ups and downs of middle age in a society that worships youth.

This talk is free and open to the public. For more information, please contact the Hood River County Library District at 541-386-2535,, or visit their website at

Kids won’t want to miss Buster’s Red Nose Review, featuring Buster the Clown and his shenanigans, starting at 5:30 p.m. on Aug. 10. Then, on Aug. 11, it’s Crafternoon, sponsored by G. Willliker’s Toy Shoppe, at 2 p.m.

It’s all part of the Hood River Library’s summer program, and are free of charge.

Looking into next week, it’s the Kids’ Theater Workshop with Sullivan Macintosh, Aug. 17-19 from 2-5 p.m., where kids can create puppets and perform a show of famous folktales. The class, “Folktale Puppetry,” is for children ages 7-11. The class if free, but registration is required at the children’s desk as space is limited. Children must commit to attending all three days of the workshop.

Little ones aren’t left out of the fun, either. Every Thursday morning beginning at 10:30 a.m., it’s Baby/Toddler and Big Kids Story Time, downstairs in the children’s library. Expect reading, songs, and lots of movement suitable for the preschool-and-under crowd.
