"Greater Happiness for the Aging and House-bound' book reading with artist and author Alice Hoskins Sat. June 20th 1:00 - 2:30pm @ the Antigonish Library and Tue. June 23rd at 2:30 at the Westville Library
At 96, Alice Hoskins has lost some of her mobility but not her enthusiasm for life. This little book is full of her words of wisdom about getting older and maintaining an engaged and creative life, illustrated throughout by watercolour paintings and pen and ink drawings by Alice, and produced through Lyghtesome Gallery. Meet and listen to the artist behind the book. All are welcome! In recognition of a lifetime of service and practice in the arts, Alice Hoskins received an honorary degree from St. Francis Xavier University in 2007. Light refreshments will be served, and books will be available for purchase. For more information, call 902-396-5022.
Hey kids! Win a Family Pack of 4 tickets! to the play "Alexander & the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day" coming to the deCoste Centre, Friday Aug 21 @ 6PM
This hilarious comedy of errors follows Alexander from sunrise to sunset on this… yes, you guessed it… Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day! We travel through the day with Alexander as he wakes up and finds his gum stuck in his hair, gets picked on at school, has to go to the dentist, doesn’t get any of the shoes he wants at the store and then finds himself in trouble (again) for messing things up on his trip to the office. All he wants is to move to Australia. There are no bad days there. He’s sure of it! Between the sincerity of Alexander’s frustration, the music, songs, audience interaction and humour this production has audiences of all ages laughing and cheering Alexander along.
Love the book? ...now you can see the play! Enter today! All you need to do is visit the library, (have a PARL library card, which is free!), and fill out a ballot to win. Draw will be held on Monday August 10th. One Ballot per child, per library visit.
