It's no mystery: Generosity creates successful events

Recently, the Kenai Community Library hosted two mystery writers, S.J. Rozan and L.C. Hayden. They were attending the Sisters in Crime Conference in Anchorage. Using grants from CIRI and the SouthCentral Foundation, conference participants were sent throughout the state to visit classrooms and give writing workshops and readings.

I want to thank CIRI and the SouthCentral Foundation for their generous sponsorship. I would also like to thank the Kenai Merit Inn for providing lodging for S.J. Rozan and L.C. Hayden, and Peggy Mullen with River City Books for hosting their readings.

It is because of their generosity that these events were a success.

Corey Hall, Kenai Community Library
