Have you ever wondered what really happens behind the scenes of your favorite pro sports team? Seattle sports personality Bob Whitsitt will provide a no-holds barred look at how professional sports really work at the Trudy J. Sundberg Memorial Lecture Series Luncheon on April 24 at Useless Bay Country Club in Langley.
Whidbey Reads is an annual spring program that brings Whidbey Island residents together to read and talk about books. Reading the same title creates a shared experience and serves as a springboard to explore commonalities and differences. The 2015 selection is "The Boys in the Boat: Nine Americans and Their Epic Quest for Gold at the 1936 Berlin Olympics" by Daniel James Brown. Whidbey Reads activities, including talks by the author, are funded by the Sno-Isle Libraries Foundation, Whidbey Island Friends of the Library Groups, and Walmart.
