Art In The Library

“The Dog Stars” will be shining day and night during April at Sisters Public Library. This month’s Art in the Library display is based on Peter Heler’s novel by that name, and will feature thematic two- and three-dimensional works by local artists. Sponsored by The Art Committee of the Friends of Sisters Library. Also, in the display cases, look for items hand crafted at Ponderosa Forge. “The Dog Stars” runs from April 1 to 30.

This year’s Novel Idea literary selection is “The Dog Stars” by Peter Heller. Hig, the novel’s protagonist, lives in a post-apocalyptic world, nine years after a pandemic wipes out 99.7 percent of the world’s population. Hig names a constellation for his dog, Jasper, and spends part of his time flying his 1954 Cessna airplane over where he lives. Visit the library, see the art, and read the book. Library hours are Sunday noon to 5 p.m. and Monday through Thursday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
