    Everyday Mysteries, book signing and reading, Jan. 27
    Karen Stockwell will read poetry from her book, Everyday Mysteries, and have copies available for sale and signing. What are “everyday mysteries”? In the context of this volume they are the things we all ponder: the nature of love, making sense of a violent world, how to nurture ourselves and our families. In solving the large and small mysteries we encounter every day, we are able to discover ourselves and the meaning of our lives.

    She will also present her marbled paper and fabric, made into prints, cards, and scarves, which will be for sale in the gift shop.

    When: Jan. 27
    Where: Galena Center for the Arts
    Time: 2 p.m.
    Cost: Free
