I know it’s only Tuesday, but First Friday in WRJ is already shaping up to be a winner

Just a couple events that have jumped out at me so far …

1. Center for Cartoon Studies book sale

From the event listing on Facebook:

Upper Valley! The Center for Cartoon Studies (CCS) is having a used book sale THIS Friday in conjunction with First Friday in White River Junction. They have hundreds of new and gently used books – mostly graphic novels, but also novels and art books and more!


Doors open at 5 if you’re a CCS alum and 5:30 to the general public. All books are just $1 each, or buy a Schulz Library tote for $20 and fill it up!

2. Snow Ball for LGBTQ Teens at the Junction

From the listing on the Valley Calendar:

A safe, substance-free event for LGBTQ youth (and allies) age 15 (or high school freshman) to 20. Live music, dancing and pizza. A costume or drag is welcome, but not mandatory. Resources for the LBGTQ community will be available.

What are you looking forward to on Friday?
