Library to feature author, movies

Hillsboro High School graduate and author Joy Bishop will be at Hillsboro Public Library from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday.

Bishop, a licensed therapist in Topeka, will talk about and sell copies of her first book, “My Gift To You.”

The book is about having important conversations with loved ones.

The book also is about grief and loss, especially loss in ways people seldom talk about.

The library also will show family movies at 1:30 and 5:30 p.m. Saturday.

The movies, popcorn, and water will be free.

At 10 a.m. March 2, Hillsboro author Debbie Oelke will share her new children’s picture book, “I Wish I Could Stand Up.” It is the first in a series of books called “Be Kind: Understanding Disability.” Oelke will have books available to purchase.

Oelke’s first book was “Still Standing, Hope Beyond Disability.” Written for adults, the book is about her life with multiple sclerosis.
