The Slocan Community Library will host two local authors, reading from their books on thought-provoking topics on Sunday, April 3 at 1 p.m. Nelson Miller will introduce his Book of Cool and Elizabeth Blakely will share a few UFO and ET stories and read from her book, Awake! A Spiritual Primer.

Miller grew up on the coast and has lived in Slocan for more than 15 years. Book of Cool is a series of epigrammatic statements (clever, concise and sometimes paradoxical) that approach “cool” as a philosophy and away of living. He explains: “This book is meant as a helpful and handy reference to being cool and digging life.”Nelson will speak of the stories behind some of the book’s statements, taking this opportunity to share what they mean to him.

Blakely’s book, The Incredible Potato: A Cookbook and History (1985), became a national best seller. “Wanting to know things,” she studied the universal energy in Reiki, and travelled to sacred sites around the world gathering metaphysical experiences. Ten years of paranormal experiences culminated in her fifth book, Awake! A SpiritualPrimer, from which she will read on April 3.

Readings at the Slocan Community Library are offered free. The authors will have books available for purchase.The library is located at 710 Harold St. in Slocan.
