SUNDAY, February 7th at 1:30pm: TEA TIME at Baker Street

He's baaaaack . . . .

And so are Corwyn, Kayden, John and Caledonia.  They've taken up residence in 221B Baker Street, at Crazy Eights on LEA 9 to present "The Return of Sherlock Holmes" from February to May.

TODAY: "The Adventure of the Empty House"
In April 1894, Watson (now a widower) checks 427 Park Lane where a young gambler, the Honorable Ronald Adair, was shot in a closed room on the 30th of March. He bumps into a wizened old book collector, who follows him home to his Kensington practice study then drops his disguise – it is Holmes. He's alive!

Join the crew in the "Baker Street Lounge" for this new journey, and settle down with a fresh cuppa.  The chairs are still comfy!

Presented Live in voice.

THURSDAY FEBRUARY 4th at 7pm: ON THE ISLAND - An Adventure Love Story


ON THE ISLAND - A Love Story
Two people stranded on an island struggle to survive—
and slowly fall in love...
part 1 of 4
Anna Emerson is a thirty-year-old English teacher desperately in need of adventure. Worn down by the cold Chicago winters and a relationship that’s going nowhere, she jumps at the chance to spend the summer on a tropical island tutoring sixteen-year-old T.J.

T.J. Callahan has no desire to go anywhere. His cancer is in remission and he wants to get back to his normal life. But his parents are insisting he spend the summer in the Maldives catching up on all the school he missed last year.

Anna and T.J. board a private plane headed to the Callahan’s summer home, and as they fly over the Maldives’ twelve hundred islands, the unthinkable happens. Their plane crashes in shark-infested waters. They make it to shore, but soon discover that they’re stranded on an uninhabited island.

At first, their only thought is survival. But as the days turn to weeks, and then months, the castaways encounter plenty of other obstacles, including violent tropical storms, the many dangers lurking in the sea, and the possibility that T.J.’s cancer could return. As T.J. celebrates yet another birthday on the island, Anna begins to wonder if the biggest challenge of all might be living with a boy who is gradually becoming a man.

WEDNESDAY, February 3rd at 7pm: More from SILENCE OF THE LOONS

Okay, maybe not all of them are silent!
"The Silence of the Loons" is a wildly inventive and often hilarious collection of short mysteries, written by thirteen of Minnesota's finest crime writers.

Challenged with a list of clues to work from (they had to include a minimum number chosen from a list of eight), these talented authors weave tales that reviewers call, "the perfect calling card for Minnesota's formidable roster of crime writers - polite, tight and lethal."  and a "creative literary smorgasbord" to "satisfy your short story cravings on a dark winter night".

"Who would be a mermaid fair,
Singing alone, combing her hair
Under the sea, in a golden curl
With a comb of pearl, on a throne?
~ Alfred Lord Tennyson
Faerie continues her presentation of the first volume in Lisa Pinkham's DOLL COLLECTION adventure series tonight, live in voice.

TUESDAY, January 26th at 7pm: PEARL Continues

Technical Difficulties!  How Annoying!  But Faerie is undaunted and she will be back this week, continuing Lisa Pinkham's first adventure from her Doll Collection, live in voice.

Pearl isn't just a mermaid book. It's an experience that takes the reader into the amazing and ever-expanding world of young readers chapter books in a way that is both exciting and enjoyable, but not overwhelming. The prose seem simple and easy to follow, yet even more experienced readers will be drawn into the fantasy as sure as adults. Friendship stories will never go out of style and Pearl is one of those characters who will live in your child's heart forever.
