There is nothing like reading a book. I love movies and the internet, but when it comes to engaging your imagination, only books will do the trick. It's extra exciting to actually meet the authors of great books -- and Yakima Valley Libraries are giving us one more chance before summer to do just that.The regional library system's final "Young Authors" series of the spring features Chris Crutcher -- a self-described "author and loudmouth" -- at the Seasons Performance Hall, 101 N. Naches Ave., this Thursday (May 11) at 7 p.m. This will be a fantastic event, especially if you love reading a good book.

Crutcher, who has written a dozen books, will talk about the writing process and living the life of a writer.

If you love books, this is truly an event that you do not want to miss.
