Annual book club tea is April 17

April 4, 2017 GMT

The Friends of the Ellensburg Public Library’s 14th annual Book Club Tea is planned at 7 p.m. April 17 in the Hal Holmes Center, according to a news release.

The tea is for all book club members and those readers who might wish to form a group.

This year’s featured author is Warren Street, a retired CWU psychology professor. He will talk about his recently published book, “25 Years Among the Indians and Buffalo: A Frontier Memoir.”

The story focuses on a memoir by William Street (1851-1911), who wrote about frontier life on the plains of western Kansas. The memoir was handed down through the Street family over the past century and was faithfully transcribed by his great-grandson. His talk will not only engage history buffs, but those who may also want to write a memoir or narrative for their personal use or to preserve their family history.

This event offers a chance for readers to connect over tea and refreshments and it is free and open to the public.
