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.

Family and Systemic Constellations along with new silent constellations talk with speaker Ursula Bayer-Klum.
Wednesday July 8, 7:00pm - 8:30pm at the New Glasgow Library
This informative talk is for those who want to become familiar with this method of self-discovery and improvement. Family & Systemic Constellations help to experience the silent movements of the soul. The method can help to identify the root of problems and the path to reconciliation, love and happiness. All are welcome! About the speaker: Ursula studied the method in Germany and has invited Gerhard Walper a master facilitator from Germany to come to Nova Scotia this fall. The workshop will be of interest to all, but particularly valuable to those working in the field of counseling. For more information please call 902 752-8233.
