See the amazing exhibit of Rivera’s and Kahlo’s work at the DIA in the morning (admission to the event is complementary) and return to the Library in the afternoon to have lunch and create your own work of art inspired by the experience. What a lovely way to spend the day with fellow art lovers (recommended for those aged 13 and up).

Since 2007, NEXTBOOK has helped SPL Fiction readers anticipate What’s Next? for their favorite author before the title was even announced. Eight years later, we regretfully close this chapter. . .

In the interests of streamlining our Library operations, NEXTBOOK will end on April 1st. It’s had a good long run! So, we hereby bid farewell to this once innovative experiment and move ahead with other projects.

In the meantime, go to your favorite author’s homepage (Google it!) to find announcements about What’s Next.
