Cat in the Hat Party

As part of our Authors & Illustrators event, the Friends of the North Logan Library are hosting Kevin Hawkes, illustrator of IMAGINE THAT!—Random House’s new book, to be released this September—explaining many fascinating details about Dr. Seuss. Local Seuss fans will get a sneak peek at the book and discover behind-the-scenes insights.

Hawkes, and author Judy Sierra, were selected by Random House and the Geisel family to create a kid-friendly exploration of the early career of Dr. Seuss (a.k.a. Ted Geisel). They captured the familiar bouncy rhythm and colorful art associated with the Seuss books to reveal little-known facts about Dr. Seuss and his creative talents. Hawkes, whose parents reside in North Logan, Utah, will talk about his illustrating experience and share interesting tidbits from the book, as well as demonstrate how he navigates the process of creating his characters. As a bonus, Hawkes will also share another of his illustrated books coming out in August, Dogosaurus Rex.

This evening will be a hit with all ages. And it is FREE!

Everyone is encouraged to wear their favorite hat, enjoy the coloring table and come and celebrate at the Library on July 17 at 7 p.m.

An Evening with Carsten Meier, Photographer

Please join us on April 1 for our 2nd event in our new “Authors & Illustrators” series:

Carsten Meier — DAMS

Prof. Meier has just released a book, in which he showcases a large selection of dams from the US and Europe, photographed over a 5-year period. He will show his images, describe the process and what drove him to pursue this particular project.

While dams may be viewed as heroic feats of engineering or as ecological disasters, Prof. Meier foregrounds their fascinating architecture, presenting their visual impact from one single perspective.

Dams boldly interrupt nature, not only through the physical act of stemming the tide of a river but also visually, via their introduction of a man-made color palette of concrete, brick and steel into the landscape. But perhaps Mother Nature will still have the final word. In some of the images of the older structures, the surrounding habitat can be seen claiming back its territory; moss quietly crawls over the smooth concrete cliff faces, slowly but surely asserting itself: a reminder that nature is force that cannot truly be contained.

Many of these images are presently being exhibited at the MANIFEST Gallery in Cincinnati, Ohio. Prof. Meier has previously given a glimpse at his dam project with an exhibit on Utah State University’s campus.

The book will be available for preview at the library.

Light refreshments and a raffle, as well as music dealing with dams will round out the evening.

[Please note that the Friends of the North Logan Library reserves the right to use any photograph/video taken at this event for promotional purposes unless the attendee notifies the Friends at PR@FriendsNLL.org in advance of the event.]

“Authors & Illustrators” Series Kick-off a Success

On Friday, March 4, we kicked off our new series “Authors & Illustrators” with a reading by Chadd VanZanten and Russ Beck from their book On Fly-Fishing the Northern Rockies: Essays and Dubious Advice. The two writers read engaging stories about their love for fly-fishing while their friend and well-known fly-tyer Tim King demonstrated the art of tying flies. The audience was able to follow his every move as it was projected onto a large screen.

In addition, there were snacks available and a number of really wonderful raffle items, including 8 flies by Mr. King and fish-themed pottery from Hyrum’s Rasmussen Pottery.

Russ Beck reading one of his stories. Next to him: fish paintings on display.

A big thank you goes to Russ, Chadd, and Tim for sharing their stories and skills. And thanks to Barbara Middleton for organizing this series. Please stay posted for further announcements. We are  hoping to dedicate every first Friday of the month to this type of event.


Next month’s speaker is USU photography professor Carsten Meier. He will speak about his longtime project of photographing dams. His recently published book DAM will be available for previewing in the library. (It cannot be checked out until after April 1.)
