Brave New Words
The Literary Arts Committee is excited to launch season 2 of our monthly event for the writers of Central Alberta. On the 2nd Friday of each month, we will gather at the Bistro on Gaetz from 7 - 9pm to share our writings new & old, in progress and published! We ask only that it is your own work being shared.
This is event is FREE, but do consider enjoying some chai or a croissant! Jean has many delicious baked goods to sample. Bring your friends and stay all evening
BOOK CLUB JAMBOREE 2020 - panel discussion
Hosted online by Red Deer Public Library and the Red Deer Arts Council, this year we discussed the current pandemic's impact on our lives, our reading habits and our book club gatherings. Jock Mackenzie moderated a discussion with the CBC's Book Reviewer Anne Logan, creative writer and college instructor Jenna Butler, and RDPL librarians Priscilla McLaughlin, Trish Klein and Claire Brown to discuss how they've adjusted to the new abnormal. Take a look and enjoy!
