Readers

readers-winkler-public-libraryI photographed these two delightful readers outside the Winkler Public Library last weekend.  Someone had decked them out in scarves.  It was a beautiful fall day and I felt like sliding in beside them on the bench to enjoy the book I had brought along.  winkler-public-libraryInstead I went into the spacious and welcoming library to work on a writing project while I waited for my husband Dave who was in Winkler for a choir rehearsal.

My Nose in a Book statue purchased at Evelyn Richter's studio
The statue in Winkler reminded me of a little art piece I have sitting on my book shelf. I bought it from Evelin Richter when I was on an art tour in the interlake a few years ago. It is called Nose in a Book.
