Together, they embark upon a journey to find Pooh’s missing friends and to recapture the joy that Christopher Robin left behind in childhood. In the process of undertaking this adventure, he will learn how to spread that sense of wonder to his own children.

Winter Book Club – A Year by the Sea by Joan Anderson

51ahgK8+MyL

Thursday, February 28, 7:00

The basis for the major motion picture of the same name. An entrancing memoir of how one woman’s journey of self-discovery gave her the courage to persevere in re-creating her life.

Life is a work in progress, as ever-changing as a sandy shoreline along the beach. During the years Joan Anderson was a loving wife and supportive mother, she had slowly and unconsciously replaced her own dreams with the needs of her family. With her sons grown, however, she realized that the family no longer centered on the home she provided, and her relationship with her husband had become stagnant. Like many women in her situation, Joan realized that she had neglected to nurture herself and, worse, to envision fulfilling goals for her future. As her husband received a wonderful job opportunity out-of-state, it seemed that the best part of her own life was finished. Shocking both of them, she refused to follow him to his new job and decided to retreat to a family cottage on Cape Cod. At first casting about for direction, Joan soon began to take pleasure in her surroundings and call on resources she didn’t realize she had. Over the course of a year, she gradually discovered that her life as an “unfinished woman” was full of possibilities. Out of that magical, difficult, transformative year came A Year by the Sea, a record of her experiences and a treasury of wisdom for readers.

Register beginning on Friday, February 1, and pick up your book to get started reading!  Enjoy a great discussion and prizes too!  We’ll see you there!

Dreamcatcher Workshop

Step-4

Wednesday, February 27, 7:00

Facilitated by Shannon Kelly, Artist in the Community and Local Artist Amber Bear

Amber Bear uses the natural beauty in her dream catchers.  The dream catchers take a shape of their own, and no dream catcher will turn out the same.  Willow branches, birch trees, imitation sinew, and gem stone/glass/shell beads are used to create the dream catcher.  As with all of nature’s creations, the dream catchers will weather and change over time.

Amber Bear currently lives in Prince Albert.  She is a single parent of an extraordinary boy, who stole her heart.  She has a dog that has big ears but chooses not to use them.  Amber grew up in Stanley Mission and La Ronge.  She loves the outdoors and the raw beauty of the northern woodland.
