May 2016 @ Lowder
The Ladies of High Tea will be meeting Tuesday, April 5, 2016 at 3PM and reading the book Agony of the Leaves by Laura Childs.
The opening of the aquarium is a major Charleston event, and Theodosia has been hired to cater the private party to honor dignitaries and big-buck donors. Things are going swimmingly—until Theodosia discovers a body entangled in a net, drowned in one of the aquarium’s state-of-the-art tanks. To make matters worse, the victim is Theodosia’s former boyfriend, Parker Scully. The EMTs think Parker’s drowning was an accident, but when Theodosia notices what look like defense wounds on his hands, she realizes that someone wanted Parker dead. The police aren’t keen on her theory, so if she wants Parker’s killer brought to justice, Theodosia will have to jump into the deep end and start her own investigation…
The Lowder Regional Branch Library Chess Club meets every Saturday, from 10AM to 1245—sharp. In the event that the club is not meeting a sign will be posted as soon as possible announcing the postponement. Join us and learn how to play chess or to brush up on your skills. Parents, chess is a game that will help build the brain and help your child with their future education—not to mention that it teaches patience as well.
