Oh no! Maybe there seriously aren’t that many events today, given that it’s Book-on-the-Head Day. As a result, our events calendar for today is a bit barren. If you’re having an event, please let us know in the comments. Also, make sure it isn’t left out in the future – Submit it via this link (as long as you’re logged into your Patch account).
“We don’t make mistakes, just happy little accidents.” – Bob Ross. The Courthouse Center for the Arts is looking for art submissions for a December show. For more information, click here.

Not to be confused with something from Star Trek: The Next Generation. On this day in 1640, the Treaty of Ripon was signed, restoring peace between England and Scotland.
