“What about May?” you say. Our usual 4th Sunday charts a course around the Memorial Day holiday, weighing anchor for our May meeting on Sunday, June 1 @ 1:30. May is Reader’s Choice month, which means you decide what to read from the Middle Grades shelf and share your review! Let us know if you found buried treasure or caught an old fish. *yuck!*
Reader Choice is the perfect time to plug in if you’re new to Deep Blue Readers and the perfect way to start the Summer with a bunch of excellent books recommended by the super awesome divers on our team.

Friday, 5/30 @ 6pm – Valley Bookseller hosts Laura Sobiech, author of Fly a Little Higher
Come to the Lowell Inn for a discussion and book signing with Laura Sobiech, whose new release Fly a Little Higher tells the heartfelt and unexpected journey her family took with son Zach following his diagnosis of osteosarcoma.
Zach Sobiech, a student at Stillwater Area High School, penned and recorded the hit song Clouds with fellow band members of A Firm Handshake. The video for Clouds has received over 10 million views on YouTube and the song went on to win a Upper Midwest Emmy Nomination for “Best Music Composition/Arrangement.”
A portion of the proceeds from sales of the book at Valley Bookseller are being donated in support of the Zach Sobiech Osteosarcoma Fund for children’s cancer research.
