The Great Alone by Kristin Hannah

Ernt Allbright, a former POW, comes home from the Vietnam War a changed and volatile man.

When he loses yet another job, he makes an impulsive decision: he will move his family north, to Alaska, where they will live off the grid in America’s last true frontier.  Thirteen-year-old Leni, a girl coming of age in a tumultuous time, caught in the riptide of her parents’ passionate, stormy relationship, dares to hope that a new land will lead to a better future for her family.  She is desperate for a place to belong. Her mother, Cora, will do anything and go anywhere for the man she loves, even if means following him into the unknown.

At first, Alaska seems to be the answer to their prayers.  In a wild, remote corner of the state, they find a fiercely independent community of strong men and even stronger women. The long, sunlit days and the generosity of the locals make up for the Allbrights’ lack of preparation and dwindling resources.  But as winter approaches and darkness descends on Alaska, Ernt’s fragile mental state deteriorates and the family begins to fracture.  Soon the perils outside pale in comparison to threats from within. In their small cabin, covered in snow, blanketed in eighteen hours of night, Leni and her mother learn the terrible truth: they are on their own. In the wild, there is no one to save them but themselves.

A Year by the Sea by Joan Anderson

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!

Category: Open Adult ProgramsExplore Lifelong Learning - The Future of the News Industry presented by Peter Lozinski

Close

January 22, 2019

In the golden age of newspapers, owning a news outlet was lucrative.

But those days are past. According to data collected by the Local News Research Project at Ryerson University, over 250 Canadian news outlets have closed in the last ten years — an the majority were local, community newspapers. Media outlets across North America have closed small regional outlets to focus on urban centres, leaving more and more communities as news deserts.

With distrust in legacy media growing amidst the rise of the moniker “fake news,” how can local media survive?

Join Prince Albert Daily Herald editor Peter Lozinski as he explores where the local news industry is going, why community outlets are here to stay and what it will take to sustain community news in the ever-changing media environment.

Peter Lozinski is the editor of the Prince Albert Daily Herald and a graduate of the Ryerson University School of Journalism. He worked at the Daily Herald during its transition to an employee owned and operated business and has led the Prince Albert newsroom for the last two years.

Prior to joining the Daily Herald, Peter spent three months as a city hall and sports reporter at the now-defunct Moose Jaw Times-Herald and two years as an editor and a reporter at the Cold Lake Sun, a weekly newspaper in Cold Lake, Alberta.

Peter also served as a section editor and newsroom manager of the Ryersonian, the official newspaper of the Ryerson School of Journalism. Upon graduating, Peter received the Dick Lunn Memorial Award, given to the student who has made the most significant contribution to the Ryersonian.

Peter lives in Prince Albert and plays in the Prince Albert Concert Band and has recently taken an interest in community theatre.
