So, as readers of Read it or Weep have come to learn, we are playing Winter Reading Bingo here at Rocky River Public Library.  Earn a bingo square by completing the (fun and edifying) task.  One of the bingo squares, which I”ll focus on in the blog post, is to read a local author.  But which local author, you say?

With so many wonderful Ohio authors to choose from, here are a few to get you started.

This winter we are so excited to help you meet your 2019 winter reading resolutions that we want to reward you for reading!   From now through February 28th you can participate in our Winter Reading Bingo program here at Rocky River Public Library.   For every bingo you complete, you can earn a raffle ticket to win gift cards, or  two tickets to any Playhouse Square production from March-May 2019.   We will be offering recommendations right here to help you complete squares on our Winter Reading Bingo board.

 

The first recommendation I’d like to make is to read a collection of short stories.  Here are a few of my favorite short story collections:
