Ground ‘Dog’ Day Book Launch

01:00 pm to 03:00 pm

On Sunday, Feb 2, Ground ‘Dog’ Day, BloomingTea will host the launch of a new pet memoir by Bloomington writer and Bloom contributor Lee Ann Sandweiss.

Of “‘Lock Ness! And Other Tales of Nessie the Scottie” (BookLocker 2019) writer and former IU creative writing professor Alyce Miller wrote: “For anyone who has ever loved and been loved by a dog, this intimate story of companion Nessie and her adventures will ring true. Sandweiss offers up a generous portrait of her mischievous and endearing best friend, as well as the resounding effects of the eventual embodied loss we all must reckon with.”

Please come for tea, cookies, and conversation. Books will be available for sale and signing; sales benefit the St. Louis Scottish Terrier Rescue (STLSTR), a non-profit that finds forever homes for Scotties and other terriers throughout the Midwest.

The Roommate

02:00 pm to 03:40 pm
Ivy Tech Waldron Rose Firebay

Cardinal Stage presents “The Roommate” January 30 – February 22 at the Ivy Tech Waldron Rose Firebay. Recently-divorced Sharon is searching for a roommate to share her Iowa home. She couldn’t have imagined that a mysterious New Yorker named Robyn would be the answer to her problems. But as Sharon begins to uncover Robyn’s secrets, they spark a desire to transform her own life completely. This smart new comedy tackles the challenges of mid-life reinvention, with unexpected results. “The Roommate tugs at the heartstrings as much as it tickles the funny bone.” ~ Louisville.com

Featuring local favorite Constance Macy (Nurse Ratched, One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest)!
