The wait is over John Green, the #1 bestselling author of The Fault in Our Stars, is back.

It all begins with a fugitive billionaire and the promise of a cash reward.

Turtles All the Way Down is about lifelong friendship, the intimacy of an unexpected reunion, Star Wars fan fiction, and tuatara. But at its heart is Aza Holmes, a young woman navigating daily existence within the ever-tightening spiral of her own thoughts.

In his long-awaited return, John Green shares Aza's story with shattering, unflinching clarity.

Where's Waldo? In Washington Depot, of course.  The famous children's book character in the striped shirt and black-rimmed specs is returning to twenty different local businesses throughout our community this July. Those who spot him can win prizes, including buttons, book coupons and more. From The Hickory Stick Bookshop to Washington Art Association and beyond, Waldo figures will be well hidden in local businesses. Find Waldo Local is a great summer  vacation activity, and a wonderful way for residents to support local business and the Shop Local movement.  If you find him in at least 15 locations, you could win prizes at our Prize Party on July 31st! What are you waiting for? Get your passport at The Hickory Stick Bookshop or any other participating business today!

Don't forget to get your photo taken in the Where's Waldo Mural (provided by The Washington Supply Company) before the end of the month!
