November Gauntlets

We would like to thank everyone who took the 4th Annual Adult Reading Challenge this year. Whether you tried to read every clue or just the ones that fit into your regular reading life- we appreciate your willingness to play the game. The Challenge officially ends December 1st at 5:00 pm, so please make sure to turn your Charters in before that. You may drop them off by StephRhonda’s office any time after Monday,  November 7th.  If we are not there when you drop off please remember to make sure your name and a phone number is printed on the Charter. (If we are not in our office you may push them under the door.) We will return Charters at the Christmas Open House (Thursday, December 8th) when the winners are announced or any regular office hours after that. We hope you enjoyed this year as much as we have!

The last two Gauntlets:

Read either Neil Gaiman or Catherine Coulter. Neil’s birthday is November 10th while Catherine’s is December 26th. Both writers are well represented in the DPL collection. Neil spans several genres including eBooks and books on CD. Catherine is mostly found in the fiction area, but is also well represented in eBooks and books on CD.


The second gauntlet is to read an Asian Author. For this category the author must be of Asian heritage, not just live in an Asian country.  A few examples are Qiu Xiaolong, Vaddey Ratner, Xinran and Jiang Rong.


Happy Reading!

Virtual Quilt Show

This entry is from Brenda Hagood.
My Grandmother made this quilt for me sometime in the 70's. She called one day and said she had a surprise for me. When I got to her house she showed me this quilt and said "I just learned how to make this quilt and I want to give it to you."

Virtual Quilt Show

This entry is from Kathy Retherford.
 My Grandmother made this quilt for me about 50 years ago. She was trying to make one for all of her granddaughters, but her her arthritis and failing eyesight prevented her from finishing the job. I have wonderful memories of time spent with my Grandmother and the quilt she made for me.

Virtual Quilt Show

This entry is from Rhonda Bolan.
I purchased this small quilt from the Gee's Bend Collective when Stephanie and I drove the ladies  home from their first visit to Decatur.This quilt was made by Lucy Witherspoon. She was one of  the four ladies who visited with us last year. When we were looking at all of the beautiful quilted items, I knew I wanted something done by one of the ladies we had gotten to know on the trip. This quilt had colors I liked and was very representative of Lucy's style. All of her quilts had a very soft puffy look that I liked.

This entry is from Phyllis Roberts.
The name of the quilt is not known, but my Mother thought perhaps it is "Around the World". The topper was pieced by Martha Davis, not too long before her death. She died in 2007 at  age 100 or 101.Verna Holcomb completed the quilt in 2016.
