September 5, 2018

Whether a parent is living or dead or known or unknown to a child, the child's knowledge about that parent impacts the development of the child. Fraternal twins Kyle and Peter learn that their mother lied to them about the death of their father for many years. Suddenly realizing that an entire aspect of their identities was a lie and eager to meet their father, they take to the road to search for him. Yet, it turns out that their mother had many lovers at the time of their conception. In fact, they may not even have the same father.

September 6, 2018

Jean-Marc Vallée’s C.R.A.Z.Y. tells the story of Zachary Beaulieu, from his birth on the 25th of December 1960 up to his adulthood; a family portrait which represents with humour and fancy the incredible journey of Zac, fourth of a family of five boys, who grows up in a family of boys with whom he tries hopelessly to fit in. The touching, sensitive and funny story of a small boy who, deciding not to lose what is most precious in his life, the love of his father, is fiercely going to disavow his true nature.

Co-sponsored by French Canadian Society of Prince Albert.

Category: Open Adult ProgramsKatherine Lawrence Book Launch - Stay (*This book launch has been cancelled until further notice.)

Close

September 6, 2018

Millie can read but she walked straight by the sign posted on the front door of her dad’s new apartment building: NO DOGS ALLOWED. How could she be so stupid? How could her dad be so dumb? He left her mom. Now he rents a place that won’t let Millie keep the pup he promised – promised –she could adopt. Mom has gone back to work full-time but says a pup costs too much money on a single pay cheque. Yet a pup would be good company for Millie. Especially in the middle of the night when she wakes in a panic about catching the wrong bus to the wrong address. A pup curled up at the foot of the bed would chase away Millie’s nightmare. Why won’t anyone listen to Millie? It’s not much fun moving back and forth every week between two homes, two beds, two kitchen tables, and two parents who cannot agree on anything except the one thing that evades Millie’s grasp.

Award winning writer Katherine Lawrence gives readers a contemporary story vividly told in rich and playful linked poems. Stay is a novel-in-verse that takes readers into the heart and mind of a young girl on the verge of discovering an ancient truth.

Katherine Lawrence is a writer whose award-winning poetry includes Never Mind (Turnstone Books), Lying to Our Mothers (Coteau Books), and Ring Finger, Left Hand (Coteau Books). Her work has been honoured by awards such as Best First Book, Saskatchewan Book Awards; the City of Regina Writing Award, and the John V. Hicks Long Manuscript Award. Her poems have been anthologized in The Best Canadian Poetry in English, 2010 and in Nelson English Grade 10 Academic Edition and Elements of English 12 by Harcourt Canada. Katherine also writes stage plays, coaches emerging writers, facilitates teen writing workshops, and chairs Access Copyright Foundation. She lives in Saskatoon and is originally from Hamilton.
