Fleishman Is in Trouble by Taffy Brodesser-Akner

Toby Fleishman thought he knew what to expect when he and his wife of almost fifteen years separated: weekends and every other holiday with the kids, some residual bitterness, the occasional moment of tension in their co-parenting negotiations. He could not have predicted that one day, in the middle of his summer of sexual emancipation, Rachel would just drop their two children off at his place and simply not return. He had been working so hard to find equilibrium in his single life. The winds of his optimism, long dormant, had finally begun to pick up. Now this.

As Toby tries to figure out where Rachel went, all while juggling his patients at the hospital, his never-ending parental duties, and his new app-assisted sexual popularity, his tidy narrative of the spurned husband with the too-ambitious wife is his sole consolation. But if Toby ever wants to truly understand what happened to Rachel and what happened to his marriage, he is going to have to consider that he might not have seen things all that clearly in the first place.

Things You Save in a Fire by Katherine Center

Carrie Hanwell is a female firefighter in Texas, and she’s a total pro at handling other people’s emergencies. But when her ailing mother asks her move to Boston, Cassie suddenly has an emergency of her own. She finds a job at a tough, old-school Boston firehouse, but firemen aren’t exactly thrilled to have a “lady” on the crew–except for the infatuation-inspiring rookie. But she can’t think about that, because love is girly, and it’s not her thing. And her old captain had advised her never to date firefighters. Cassie can feel her resolve slipping, and it means risking it all–the only job she’s ever loved, and the hero she’s worked like hell to become.

Aboriginal Storytelling Month Event
Friday, February 28, 10:30 and 1:30
Presenter:  Jason Chamakese

It’s Saskatchewan Aboriginal Storytelling Month this February.  The winter timing for Aboriginal Storytelling observes the First Nations traditional time for storytelling.  Throughout February First Nations and Métis storytelling events are going to be held by schools, libraries, and community groups across Saskatchewan.

Registered students as well as the public are invited to this storytelling event presented by Jason Chamakese featuring storytelling and flute playing.  The presentations will be on Friday, February 28 at 10:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. at John M. Cuelenaere Public Library.  They will be approximately 1 hour long.  Recommended for all ages.  Space is limited.

Jason Chamakese is from the Pelican Lake First Nation in Saskatchewan.  He is from the Plains Cree Nation and is a fluent speaker of the Cree language. He began his flute playing as a hobby in 1998. As a natural progression, he began to compose his own music which led him to record and release Midnight at Clearwater, Native American Flute Songs, volume 1 in 2007. Later, he released the self-titled album Jason Chamakese, Native American Flute Songs, volume 2 in 2010. He is a multi-nominated artist and had nominations for Best Flute player at the Native American Music Awards, Canadian Aboriginal Peoples Choice Music Awards, and Canadian Aboriginal Music Awards in 2011. He is the winner of the Best Traditional Flute CD category at the 2011 Canadian Aboriginal Music Awards. He has traveled throughout North America sharing his music and stories. His music took him overseas where he toured alongside famed round-dance singer Robert Gladue in Scotland.

In May of 2015, he suffered a stroke and was placed on life support. With 30% chance to live, he fought and is well on his way to making a full recovery doing the things the loves doing which also includes playing the Native American Flute for people of all ages. His presentations involve storytelling and flute playing with many important lessons infused into the stories and songs involving mutual respect and understanding among all races of people as well as lessons from his own personal health issues and recovery. He has many years of experience and is very professional and his presentation is highly educational and entertaining. He was also a nominee for the 2018 Indigenous Music Awards held in Winnipeg, Manitoba.

Hosted by Library Services for Saskatchewan Aboriginal Peoples Inc.
