March 8, 2018

We all love food. As a society, we devour countless cooking shows, culinary magazines and foodie blogs. So how could we possibly be throwing nearly 50% of it in the trash? Filmmakers and food lovers Jen and Grant dive into the issue of waste from farm, through retail, all the way to the back of their own fridge. After catching a glimpse of the billions of dollars of good food that is tossed each year in North America, they pledge to quit grocery shopping and survive only on discarded food. What they find is truly shocking.

Everyone is welcome to attend this free event. Sponsored by the Saskatchewan Nutrition Month Committee. Brought to you by the P.A. and Area Dietitians' Group.

Category: Open Adult ProgramsE. Lynn Cormick Book Launch - Der Reizen

Close

March 17, 2018

Herta Tanner, a young Canadian woman, inherits a cottage in Bavaria, Germany, as well as an unusual job. According to her interpretation of a letter from an unknown relative, she must learn to be a pimp for vampires. Herta only wants to get her life together after a nasty divorce and maybe find a friend or two along the way. She becomes a suspect in a murder and after discovering a secret entrance to Tielen, Herta discovers that she must choose from a multitude of men (all aspects of the same man, her soul mate), one to rule Tielen, the alternate universe that resides behind the Gates. She makes her choice, but is it the right one?

Once her choice is made, Herta discovers she is to be treated as royalty for a generation, twenty-five years, provided she can follow Tielen rules. In Germany, Herta runs into other problems, not the least of which is the Thule Society who want Herta and her soul mate dead. Herta holds her own until she loses her temper.

E. Lynn Cormick began writing at age eleven until a family member told her that writing was a waste of time. She picked up her writing again when she joined the Canadian Armed Forces. After taking an ICS course in Journalism and Short Story Writing and a Long Ridge Writers Group course for magazine writing, Lynn decided to work more seriously at her writing. Her first attempts were more novelettes than magazine length stories, but they gave her a taste for the longer stories. She has written two books during stints with NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) and is planning to write more using the same incentive. She has been published in local papers and in military newsletters. “Der Reizen” is her first foray into novel writing. She has also earned certificates as an Audiovisual Technician and in New Media Communications.

Lynn is owned and supervised by two Siamese cats and an orange tabby. She has two grown-and-flown children, one of whom is a beta reader for her. She currently resides in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan and enjoys knitting, crocheting and all manner of other needle crafts when she’s not at the computer writing stories or maintaining websites. She is the secretary/librarian for the Creative Stitchers Guild and secretary for the Prince Albert Writers Group. She makes time to volunteer at the local food bank.

Come and meet Lynn and enjoy readings from her latest published work. Books for sale.

This winter we will meet to discuss a few books that were chosen as finalists for the Giller Prize Book Award.

Next Year for Sure by Zoey Leigh Peterson
After nine years together, Kathryn and Chris have the sort of relationship most would envy. They speak in the shorthand they have invented, complete one another's sentences and help each other through every daily and existential dilemma. When Chris tells Kathryn about his attraction to Emily, a vivacious young woman he sees often at the laundromat, Kathryn encourages him to ask her out on a date--certain that her bond with Chris is strong enough to weather whatever may come.

As Kathryn and Chris stumble into polyamory, Next Year, For Sure tracks the tumultuous, revelatory and often very funny year that follows.

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