Signer/songwriter Sam Cooke famously admits to not knowing much about geography, biology, history and slew of other subjects in his 1960 song What A Wonderful World. Save yourself from having to admit the same by attending “What Don’t You Know” programs this August at Deschutes Public Library. During the series you can explore Central Oregon birding, learn how to sling an insult like William Shakespeare, practice making stuff up in a fiction writing workshop, check out the sun with a solar telescope, hear about hip hop in the Northwest, and test your knowledge at a Library Trivia event at The Lot. All programs are free and open to the public. Registration is required for some programs.
