Gnu's Room Events

Here's the line-up for what's going on at the Gnu's Room this week.  For any who aren't familiar with it, the Gnu's Room is our local used bookstore/coffeeshop.  They do a good job of keeping active with the Auburn Community and bringing in a lot of local talent, be it authors, lecturers, massage therapists, or singers.  Be sure to check them out.

Wednesday, February 24th, 5:30 p.m. - Coffee Cupping

Thanks to everyone who came by on Saturday, February 20th to help
celebrate the opening of Mama Mocha's Coffee Roastery at The Gnu's
Room. The day was a lot of fun and a great start for Sarah Barnett's
brand new business. Mama Mocha's will be hosting at least one coffee
cupping each week. Learn more about where your coffee comes from and
develop a more educated palette! The next cupping will take place on
Wednesday, February 24th at 5:30 p.m. Space is very limited so be sure
to sign up for a slot.

Thursday, February 25th, 7:00 p.m. - Short Film Screening

Kerry Weldon curates the latest installment of the Gnu's Room's short
film series. A short by local filmmaker Hollie Lavenstein will be the
featured work along with several animated shorts. The program will
last approximately one hour and there is no charge for this event.

Friday, February 26th, 5:30 p.m. - The Write Time at the Gnu's Room

If you enjoy writing fiction, non-fiction or poetry and would be
interested in meeting others over coffee or tea to talk about the
writing life, to share ideas and tips about getting started, learn how
to cope with writers block, how to edit your work or get published,
then The Write Time might be just the place for you! All are welcome
no matter at what stage of writing they may be, including those who
have always wanted to write but don't know how to begin.  Come have
some fun with others who share your passion. The Write Time is hosted
by Helen Silverstein, editor of The Southern Women’s Review.

Friday, February 26th, 6:30 p.m. - The Source of Happiness: The
