Dog Ears Bookstore Reschedules Visit by Author Daniel Bentivogli

Dog Ears Bookstore Reschedules Visit by Author Daniel Bentivogli

Due to production delays, author Daniel Bentivogli’s visit to Dog Ears Bookstore & Café, originally scheduled for Thursday, Oct. 12, has been rescheduled for 6:30 p.m. Oct. 26. Bentivogli is the author of The Adventures of Sticky McGooey and Friends: Vexed With an X. The nonprofit community bookstore is located at 688 Abbott Road in South Buffalo.

Bentivogli is a retired water quality professional who has delighted children for years with science-based fanciful tales. He knows science is stranger than fiction and that fiction is very strange, and the result is this fascinating book.

In this whimsical adventure, Sticky McGooey is so tall and thin he looks like a zipper, while his best friend Beef Palumbo is so big and wide he resembles a wall. They always have each other's back and they are always ready for fun and adventure!

Make Your Own Beadwork Owl at Audubon on Wednesdays, September 6 and 13

Make Your Own Beadwork Owl at Audubon on Wednesdays, September 6 and 13

Jamestown, NY – You can learn to make a beautiful beadwork owl pendant to wear or give as a gift.

Bead artist Anne Jackson will instruct the 1-3 p.m. workshop on Wednesdays, September 6 and 13 at Audubon Community Nature Center (ACNC).

You can show off a bit of nature by learning beading techniques used to make a charming owl pendant. You will work with small seed beads and some medium size beads while learning to weave them into a pendant that you will want to wear every day.

It will take two sessions to create this piece of art, and you may need to work on the owl at home between sessions in order to complete it by the end of the second class.

No prior beading experience is needed to take this class.

Be sure to bring your glasses if you need them for close-up work.

Jackson is a member of the Chautauqua County Society of Artists. She has taught beading for more than two decades, both privately as well as at Audubon.
