Local quilters display works based on popular novel at the library

More than a dozen quilters will display their quilts inspired by the book, The Book of Lost Names, by Kristin Harmel, at

the Bowman Regional Public Library.

First, each quilter read the book. They met at the library to discuss the book in November. Then they used creativity and their imaginations to create their own unique quilts based on their interpretation of the novel.

The idea for this exhibition was presented to the library by Margie Hande. Margie ap­proached the library in Sep­tember after seeing an exhibit based on the book at a quilt show in Oregon. She thought it would be a fun idea to try here knowing the depth of talent found in quilters in our region.

The quilters are from Rhame, Bowman, Amidon, Belfield and Dickinson.

The quilts will hang in the Bowman Regional Public Li­brary until April 14. Visit the library at any time during li­brary hours to view the quilts. An opening reception was held on Feb. 16 at the library.
