I'm late getting this in writing but I am still high over the Author Talks at Camp Verde Community Library this summer. Seven local authors gave presentations as part of the Adult Reading Program.
I commend the library for offering these programs to both children and adults. These were not book signings. Books were not for sale. I did not have the 'salesman' feeling like at a signing, though I suppose there is always an element of selling when talking about one's book. It was simply a pleasure to speak to interested readers about books, mine and others, and my writing process. I donated a copy of Willowtree to the library and another as a door prize.
I like that this library has the word 'community' in its official title, and I saw many people engaged in various activities during my short time there.
The whole town should be proud of the CVCL and its terrific staff.

-What's the difference between http:// and https:// ?
...if you know, don't forget it...if you don't, you should...
It's about security.
HTTP stands for Hyper Text Transfer Protocol.
The added 'S' stands for 'Secure.'
When you visit a website look at the address in the web browser, it will likely begin with : http://. This means the communication between the websit and your browser is using the regular "unsecured" language.
So, it is possible for someone to "eavesdrop" on your conversation.
If the web address begins with https:// the site is using a secure code and no one can eavesdrop.
Before entering any vital information like a credit card number be sure to look at the address, and be sure it begins with https://.
