5K fundraiser and book talk for Phillips Public Library

Melissa Coleman's memoir, This Life Is In Your Hands, chronicles her childhood during the back-to-the-land movement of the 1970's on her father's farm.

PHILLIPS - The Phillips Public Library will be hosting a 5k fundraiser on Saturday, June 1. Registration fee is $10 for adults and $5 for students. Money will go to the library's operating fund. Registration begins at 9 a.m., walkers begin at 9:45 a.m. and the race begins at 10 a.m.

After the 5k (11 a.m.), join us for a discussion with Freeport-based New York Times bestselling author Melissa Coleman.
