Recently arrived from Scotland, author Saskia Tepe will share her revealing memoir.
Surviving Brigitte's Secrets" is a true tale of her mother's Holocaust survival and how her mother's secret trauma affected Saskia's own childhood.
It is at once "part mystery and part psychological healing," said author Tepe.

Saskia Tepe's experiences will be a revelation for many Americans and an usual opportunity for Dripping Springs residents.
Book sales will benefit the Dripping Springs Community Library.

Mah-jongg!  Mysterious? Maybe?  Fun? Definitely!

Accomplished players and interested participants alike are invited to rattle the tiles and join the fun every Wednesday of each month from 1 – 4 PM in the Dripping Springs Community Library Meeting Room. Mah-jongg enthusiast Elizabeth Glidden will introduce you to other players  and get you started.  Bring a current Mah-Jongg card and your set if you have one.

“Mah-jongg is played with four players using tiles stamped with Chinese symbols,” said Elizabeth Glidden.  “The goal of the game is to be the first to match your tiles to a specific hand from the National Mah Jongg League's (NMJL) annually distributed scorecard by picking and discarding.  It’s rather like the card game Gin Rummy – only faster! I will provide my own set of Mah-Jongg and have handouts to teach the rules of play.”
