Art and Book Reception Honors Library

Artist Bo Jordan and WILL, Writers in League with Libraries, are hosting an Art and Book Reception on Sunday, September 27 from 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM at the Highland Park Public Library. Jordan’s impressionistic paintings will be on display in the library from September 9 through September 30. According to Elizabeth A. Pallitto, editor and founder of WILL, it is very fitting that the group holds a reception for their newly published book, Leaves of Fall, at the Highland Park Public Library. The community is invited.

“With the support of the library, we have become a community—and we encourage other writing groups to do the same,” Ms. Pallitto said. “Our workshop is in its element in the local public library, a natural meeting place for a group of writers.

Last September when the group was meeting at the library for their weekly workshop, artist Bo Jordan was putting up her art exhibit, and the group asked if her painting Fall Foliage could be featured on the cover of their new book.

Most of Ms. Jordan’s paintings include latex, enamel and acrylic. Four years ago she developed her hands on technique.
