THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – Friday, April 12, 2019 Page 15 THE RIGHT COLORS: Pam Gill, co-president of the New Friends of the Saugus Public Library, matched up the colors of the book cover of “Postcards from Cedar Key” by Terri DuLong with a selection of flowers, mostly carnations. She also had the same colored balls of yarn to match up to the ones depicted on the book cover. FOR THE BIRDS: Doris Napier, of the New Friends of the Saugus Public Library, shows off the floral arrangement – which includes a birdhouse – to go with the book “Build Your Own Birdhouses” by John Perkins. MY FAVORITES: Mary O’Connell, head of the Reference Department at the Saugus Public Library, says she loves sunflowers and the artist Vincent van Gogh. So, it was only natural – after reading “The Sunflowers are Mine” by Martin Bailey (the story about van Gogh’s masterpiece) – to match the book up with her favorite flowers, sunflowers, at this year’s “Books in Bloom” event. A TRUE STORY: Saugus Garden Club Co-President Joyce Rodenhiser stands near her exhibit with flowers matched to the book “Born a Crime: Stories from a South African Childhood” by Trevor Noah, a South African comedian and star of late night TV in America. The book focuses on Noah being born to a Swiss father and a mother who was black – which happened to be a crime during South Africa’s apartheid. GARDEN CLUB | from page 14 cups and napkins that blended with the theme of the day. “This year, we had hostesses, which we didn’t have in the past,” Saugus Garden Club CoPresident Donna Manoogian said. “They welcomed the patrons with a handout explaining ‘The Books in Bloom’ program. And we had refreshments – fresh goods and coffee … This year we also had five librarians entered in the event,” she said. The afterschool program – Youth and Nature – sponsored by the Saugus Garden Club, created tissue paper flowers. There were plenty of flowers available for people to use if they didn’t have their own. Library employees and members of the New Friends of the Saugus Public Library made some floral arrangements. And, of course, there were plenty of flowers for children and other visitors to take home if they wanted. “We thank Trader Joe’s for their generous donations of flowers to add to the ambiance of this event,” Manoogian said.
