Join us on Tuesday, November 28 at 7 PM as married authors Gudrun Johnston and David Anthony Durham talk about their new books, Grand Shetland Adventure Knits and The Longest Night in Egypt.
Join knitwear designers Mary Jane Mucklestone and Gudrun Johnston for a true Shetland adventure! Their first co-authored book Grand Shetland Adventure Knits is a love letter to these fascinating islands, their nature, traditions and people. It features 14 knitwear patterns that are perfect for a trip to Shetland: from cozy socks and hats to colorwork sweaters. Gudrun will be with us on the 28th.
Short travel stories showcase some of Mary Jane and Gudrun’s favorite places to visit, taking you on an unforgettable journey to a place that — despite its small size and remote location — has had a great impact on the world of knitting.

The Shadow Prince saga continues as Ash and his heroic friends rush to save Ra from the belly of Apep and bring light back to an Egypt that has been plunged into darkness.
Back at his evil tricks, Set, the devious god of chaos has rid Egypt of the sun god Ra and plunged the kingdom into never-ending night. He's even managed to trap the rest of the gods in a palace chamber without the use of their magic. Now demons run amok in the city, filling it with chaos and destruction.
But hope is not lost Ash, Prince Khufu, Seret, Gilli, and two new friends, Thea and Iset, must brave the depths of the Duat--the spooky, cavernous Egyptian underworld--to rescue Lord Ra. Numerous demons fly about them in the darkness. Deadly peril awaits them around every craggy corner. They must fight, trick, sneak, and solve riddles to pass through each successive gate. If Team Shadow Prince can manage to get through all that, they will still have to face a demon like none they've seen before: the fierce, wily, enormous, god-eating serpent, Apep.
Will the kids prevail? Can Ash and his friends reunite Ra's magic with the sun and bring power and light back to the kingdom? Or will Egypt remain in darkness forever?
