“Vaughn Hawthorn will be playing acoustic music at the Wisebird this Saturday Feb 26th at 10am. Please come and support these talented kids!” -Ryan Hawthorn
We will have crepes from 9-3….It is going to ROCK!! Be there.
Hi-ya World! (It’s been a while; I know. My sincerest apologies to all of you!)
I have a few announcements to make today…….
~We are now making CREPES!!
Every Saturday and Sunday from 9am-3pm you can stop by and have Jen and Margaret whip you up some of their delicious Sweet and/or Savory gourmet crepes.! (My favorite is the Black Forest Ham, Mushroom and cheese, but it is impossible for me to pass up on the Classic Strawberries and Cream.)
I’m going to delete the page that has the Wisebird Book Club info on it and start posting on the main page so… Here is Shanna’s most recent email:
We have chosen books to discuss for the next three months. Here is our list of choices.
February 24 – “Major Pettigrew’s Last Stand”, a current bestseller. I’ve heard it’s delightful and a bit of a love story for our month of romance.
March 24 – “The Invisible Wall”, the memoir of a man who grew up Jewish in a small town in England, pre-World War I. I’ve read this one and recommend it.
April 28 – “Hunger Games”, a very popular young adult novel, the first in a trilogy. I’ve also read this one and I’m excited to discuss it with our group.
We also considered “The Girls From Ames” and “A Walk in the Woods” if you need more books to keep you busy.
Please join us whenever you can and feel free to bring a friend. The discussions are always interesting and the time together is well spent.
…This looks like an AMAZING line up! I’m so excited to swing by and hear what the ladies have to say about these titles.
Remember, anyone is invited to join the club. Just read that month’s discussion title and come by on the 4th Thursday of every month at 6pm!! They have so much fun and really learn a lot from each other.
~With The Band
I am SO excited to tell you about this next event! Saturday, February 26th from 10am until 12pm. The Wisebird will proudly be hosting The Fathers and Daughters of PALAMINO!! Those of you who are already fans of Ogden’s rockin’ local band, you are in for a huge treat. This set is the Fellas and their Daughters. They come play acoustic guitar and bongos while their daughters sing songs that have a great old blues feel to them. This group is seriously fantastic and precious to watch. I promise it’s a memory you will want to create!
Alright, I think that is all for today! It’s been so great to get your comments and feedback! Please feel free to leave me a comment if there is something you would like me to improve on, something you like, a bit of inspiration you want to share, or if you just wanna say “Hi.” I LOVE hearing from you!! Have a good one.
SO much to update….Let’s bulletin, shall we:
- Mockjay release party was a HUGE success!! Tons of people came by to pick up the first copy of the much awaited finale to the Hunger Games. We even had people hanging out to read the first chapter around the fire place!! A great night!
- Mount Fort Jr. High Community of Caring went off with a bang!! This year we, once again, had the opportunity to participate in the Community of Caring at Cedar Village. The kids came into the store and read poetry they’ve written or recited famous poets! They kids had a blast and we couldn’t have been happier to be involved!!
The 13th book in the Wheel of time series, Towers of Midnight, has arrived and is available for purchase to those of you who are fans!!!
We are going to be selling Avon products from our store! We have a great representative in this area and she is going to start keeping her products in the store and available for purchase at any time! Let us know if you are interested.

Hey! I know a lot of you are pretty excited for the release of the Hunger Games finale, ‘Mockingjay’, so I talked to my boss and she has agreed to let me open the store at 11pm that night and you guys can come by and be some of the first to get your copy!! It’s going to be LOTS of fun. We can have a read-a-thon, snacks, games, just whatever!! Let me know if you are interested and feel free to invite your friends. I’m going to place another pre-order of books on Monday so, let me know if you want me to reserve a copy for you!! CHECK OUT OUR EVENT ON FACEBOOK!!!!!!!
Read it BEFORE you see it. Rumors are true! Elizabeth Gilbert’s memoir “Eat, Pray, Love” is going to be made into a major motion picture staring Julia Roberts. This book is a fantastic read! The book tells the story of a woman in search of her own peace. **side note, I had the opportunity to read this book on a long plane ride, it moved me deeply and inspired my soul. It wasn’t until the charming elderly woman who was sitting next to me, put down her knitting (literally) to put her hand on my knee, that I realized I had tears streaming down my face. Her kind words of comfort to me were simply “oh sugar, I cried when I read that book, too!”
Needless to say, we recommend this book to all ages of women. And we highly encourage you to read the book before you see the movie!
We just recieved our shipment of “The Passage” by Justin Cronin! This is supposed to be the latest and greatest vampire novel. It’s adult fiction and highly recommended by people everywhere!! Drop by and pick yours up TODAY!!
