Spring has sprung. Finally. On Saturday, April 6, the FOL will be holding their Spring Book Sale in front of the library on Main Street from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. Come by and stock up at great prices. It’s Missouri and you never know when there will be a rainy afternoon just right for reading.
If it rains, the sale will be moved inside.
“They Came From Missouri,” a lecture series to raise funds for the new library, will begin on Thursday, April 11, at 1 p.m. at Cooper’s Oak Winery on Main Street in Boonville. Liz Davis will be speaking on Missouri Writers: Twain, Wilder, & Truman.

Tickets will be sold throughout the first three months for a copy of “The ART of the Capitol: History in Canvas, Bronze, and Stone” by Bob Priddy and Jeffrey Ball, which will be given away on June 20.
Larry Allen, author of “Do Come In” (a book of historically accurate poems about Lizzie Borden) will kick off the second half of the series on July 11 with a presentation on Jesse James.
