Category: Open Adult ProgramsExplore Lifelong Learning - From Lenin to Stalin, the Russian Revolution Evolves presented by Dr. Clay Burlingham

Close

January 30, 2018

In 1921, as Russia lay exhausted, in the wake of the Civil War that had ravaged the country for almost three years, Lenin chose to make peace with the peasants, by allowing them to keep their land, and market their grain. It was this policy and peace, which marked the beginning of Stalin's turn, from the leader he had long admired. This presentation will examine the Civil War, Lenin's peace and Stalin's rise.

Dr. Clay Burlingham has taught for over fifteen years at the University of Saskatchewan, done research in France on numerous occasions, (living in Paris for months at a time), and lived at one point in Italy for four years, traveling from there all over Europe. He is currently one of the most popular professors teaching at the U of S off campus program in Prince Albert. This is his eighth lecture for ELL.

January 31, 2018

High schoolers Mitsuha and Taki are complete strangers living separate lives. But one night, they suddenly switch places. Mitsuha wakes up in Taki's body, and he in hers. This bizarre occurrence continues to happen randomly, and the two must adjust their lives around each other. Yet, somehow, it works. They build a connection and communicate by leaving notes, messages, and more importantly, an imprint. When a dazzling comet lights up the night's sky, something shifts, and they seek each other out wanting something more-a chance to finally meet. But try as they might, something more daunting than distance prevents them.

Category: Open Adult ProgramsBill Robertson Book Launch - Decoys

Close

February 1, 2018

Celebrating the joys of a simple life and all manner of wild things, Robertson breathes vitality and wonder into a love of chickadees, canoeing, and teaching grandchildren to fish. William Robertson leads us through the beauty he finds within the simplicity of an honest life. His poems explore how his roles as father and grandfather allow him to share his love of the natural world, and his passions ignite, especially when he writes about his love of birds. He is modest in his knowledge of nature, humble in knowing that there is too much ever to appreciate fully when armed with our curiosity alone. And so, he sees himself as a sort of decoy, a lure for wild birds, knowing if he succeeds we might discover what he has discovered: “In the creek, birds I’ll probably never name explain their desire.” He writes as if quiet devotion just might release their thoughts. This collection is one that will delight Canadian readers, as in these pages we get to know one who has truly loved the smallest and simplest creatures of Mother Nature, and within them found the extraordinary beauty of this land.

William Robertson is a poet, university English instructor, freelance writer, reviewer, and broadcaster. He has published four collections of poems, the most recent of which is Just Living (2005), and the biography, K.D. Lang: Carrying the Torch (1993). He was on the editorial board of the NeWest Review for ten years. He has also reviewed plays, books, and musical events for the Saskatoon Star Phoenix, to which he has contributed since 1979, and he reviewed plays and concerts for CBC Saskatchewan for fifteen years. He was also a regular panelist on the national CBC’s Talking Books program for all of its eleven-year tenure.

Come and meet Bill and enjoy readings from his latest published work. Books for sale.

As her hope dwindles, Agathe falls in with her spirited coworker, Debbie, who teaches Agathe about rock and roll, and with Martin Bureau, the one man who might know the truth about Réjean's fate.

A timeless classic that has been loved for generations, BAMBI now joins the Walt Disney Signature Collection. In this life-changing adventure, Bambi sets off with his best friends Thumper and Flower to explore the wonders and challenges of the woods -- and fulfill his destiny as prince of the forest. Full of humor and heart, and featuring awe-inspiring animation, BAMBI remains a family favorite, ready to delight a whole new generation.|In striving for realism, the artists heard lectures from animal experts, made field trips to the Los Angeles Zoo, watched specially filmed nature footage shot in the forests of Maine, and even studied the movements of two fawns that were donated to the Studio.|"Fellas, this stuff is pure gold," Walt Disney told the animators. The story of the little deer coming of age has endured, and today, BAMBI is universally regarded as one of Walt Disney's most charming films.
