Libraries are for a lot more than just lending books. They serve as focal points for all things literary and community oriented. And sometimes, they do both at the same time.
Times like today.
Today marks the beginning of Boise Public Library's Local Author Series, in which seven Boise writers will spend an hour at lunch discussing their work and their process.
The series begins today and will run noon-1 p.m. Wednesdays through April 13 at the Library! at Cole and Ustick in the Sagebrush Room.
First up is Katy Robinson.
