Trigiani book auction planned 3.18.09

Written by David Green.

Bidding will begin today for a chance to win an advance reader edition of Adriana Trigiani’s book, “Very Valentine.”

Trigiani donated 10 copies of the book to Stair Public Library last fall and seven of those will be available through a silent auction at the library.

Bids will be accepted through March 31. The seven highest bidders shave first chance to buy a copy at the highest price.

Trigiani autographed nameplates for all those who attended the speakerphone chat last November. Those nameplates can be picked up at the library.

Nameplates are available for Lee Manion, Jackie Green, Lois Speed, Patsy Barrett, Twila Knoblauch, Lorene Whitehouse, Joyce Woerner, Betsey Smith, Pat Houttekier, Vicki Plummer, Janelle Thomas, Liz Stella, Molly McDowell, Jane Brasher-Garrow, Peggy Decker, Sheri Frost, Colleen Leddy, Wilma Gould, Ruth Downer, Sharon Bruce, Sandy Emmons and Pam Hollstein.

    ART PARK—A design created by Poggemeyer Design Group shows a “pocket art park” in the green space south of the State Line Observer building. The proposal includes a 12-foot sculpture based on a design created by Morenci sixth grade student Klara Wesley through a school and library collaboration. A wooden band shell is located at the back of the lot. The Observer wall would be covered with a synthetic stucco material. City council members are considering ways to fund the estimated $125,000 project and perhaps tackling construction one step at a time.
