Mystical HarpMusic @ the Library
Sunday, June 7 @ Kennedy

 Enjoy music in the Sonata sculpture area. Take a step out of reality and into the mystical, magical world of Megan Upchurch, harpist, vocalist, and songwriter. Megan’s ethereal music will soothe and inspire. The spirit of her music comes from within, but its roots are in the land of her Celtic heritage; a land of myths, beauty, and mystery. To listen to her bardic melodies, is to share in tales of love and loss, joy and sorrow, inspiration and despair. Visit Megan’s webpage at to learn more and hear samples of her music.

Meet the Author!

February 27, 2009

Kennedy Library
Saturday, April 4 at 1:30 p.m.

Kelsey Timmerman, author of Where Am I Wearing? will be a guest judge at the April 4 Edible Books Festival. Where Am I Eating? explores the globalization of the food industry. Copies of Where Am I Wearing? will be available for sale and for author signature at the Edible Books Festival. Timmerman and his wife are Muncie residents.

Book Description (from

Globalization makes it difficult to know where the things you buy come from. Journalist and travel writer Kelsey Timmerman wanted to know where his clothes came from and who made them, so he traveled from Honduras to Bangladesh to Cambodia to China and back. Along the way, he met the people who made his favorite clothes and learned as much about them as he did about globalization itself. Enlightening and controversial at once, this book puts a human face on globalization.
