Close

January 31, 2019

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.

Register beginning on Wednesday, January 2, and pick up your book to get started reading! Enjoy a great discussion and prizes too! We’ll see you there!

February 19, 2019

While World War I had been touted as the war to end all wars, the Treaty of Versailles was intended to secure a permanent peace. Yet, in just twenty years, the peace was in tatters, and much of the world at war. This presentation will examine the world that the Treaty brought to birth, along with why it’s very existence was in peril from its inception.

Dr. Clay Burlingham has taught for over fifteen years at the University of Saskatchewan and University of Regina and in the Prince Albert off-campus program. He has done research in France on numerous occasions, (living in Paris for months at a time), and lived in Italy for four years at one point, traveling from there all over Europe. He is well versed in all things to do with European history. This will be his 9th lecture for ELL and we are very happy to have him here again to talk about the treaty that ended World War I and it’s long term consequences.

Both musically-inclined and internally broken, Jackson and Ally are lovers of an unshakable bond. Undoubtedly gifted yet sorely despondent, Ally is ready to abandon her dreams of becoming an artist. Fortunately, Jackson's unbridled love won't allow for such. In a last-ditch effort to revive her hopes, Jackson convinces Ally to continue pursuing her goals. As Ally's musical career begins to thrive, their relationship is marred by Jackson's conflicting emotions and toxic alcoholism.

Category: Registered Adult ProgramsDreamcatcher Workshop - Facilitated by Shannon Kelly, Artist in the Community and Local Artist Amber Bear

Close

February 27, 2019

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.

Shannon Kelly is the creator and Editor of Women’s Magazine “Vintage Gypsy” based out of Prince Albert, SK. She is the curator for the Rock My Gypsy Soul Music Festival and creator and facilitator for the “Write Your Way Home” 6-week intensive writing workshop offered through Vintage Gypsy. She is a storyteller, a community builder and a humanitarian. She believes that we all have a story to tell and that each story is unique and important. She hopes to fill Lynda’s shoes with grace and bring new and exciting ideas and workshops to the library in the coming year. Shannon is available for consultation in the Library via appointment and is available for walk in visits on Wednesday afternoons at the library. You can contact her at shannon@thevintagegypsy.ca or by phone at: 306-930-6693.

Design this beautiful dreamcatcher, and learn about the stories behind it. Call 763-8496 to register beginning on Friday, February 1. Materials supplied.

Category: Registered Adult ProgramsWinter Book Club - A Year by the Sea by Joan Anderson

Close

February 28, 2019

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!
