Artist Lydia Musco nearly completed installation of her three book-inspired concrete sculptures Friday in the new Book Garden next to the public library, off Main Street. The three colored pillars are the focal points of the new garden, which is under an old oak in a space that once was dirt and mulch.
The Book Garden will be dedicated on Saturday, Sept. 15 at 3:30 p.m. in a ceremony open to the public.
The event will include a visit from Curious George, courtesy of Main Street Books, and Dudley the dog, courtesy of the Davidson Public Library. Teens and tweens will receive free copies of “The Hunger Games,” donated by Scholastic Books, while supplies last. And the Wells Fargo Foundation is providing stagecoach rides from the library’s parking lot.
