Editor’s Note


The Legal Limit Author to Speak at AU by April Hawkins

Editor's Note

On Tuesday, September 22, at 5:18 pm, we will fall into a new season with progressively fewer daylight hours. What are you going to do when the temperature drops and the nights become longer? Keep in mind that this is a family magazine so the answer must be G-rated. I have a few suggestions. How about writing a book like Angela Harris did? She’s pictured on this month’s cover and her story is on page 4. Or listening to best-seller author Martin Clark talk about his latest book when he comes to Averett University? Read April Hawkins’ review of his book on page 3 and then think of some questions to ask him. Or attend the YWCA Book Reviews at the Danville Public Library on Tuesdays at noon? Or read Julie and Julia: 365 Days, 524 Recipes, 1 Tiny Apartment Kitchen? It was the inspiration for a movie and motivated Annelle Williams to cook the recipe found on page 11. After you finish reading this free issue of Evince, go to the public library. There are 124,115 books at the Danville Public Library and thousands more at the county libraries waiting for you to take them home and enjoy ….and it won’t cost you a penny. Where else can you become connected to the world so easily and without cost? Like Linda Lemery says in Reflecting Forward on page 10, you just might become passionate about reading—and that’s something we like to talk about in a family magazine.
