The TD Summer Reading Club is back at Wakefield Library this summer. Every week, a new craft will be posted for you to try out at home. The Library has tons of books for you to discover, so come in and find something new to read this summer!

Write Night

4th Tuesday of the Month
7:00 pm to 8:30 pm

Given the recent provincial directives, we are meeting via Zoom only. Contact Linda via email at least a day or two before each gathering to receive the link — linda[@]lindavanderlee[.]com

Play with words, your words! Linda will offer creative, short, and fun writing exercises to simply goof around with words and ideas and different ways into the writing process. No experience necessary just an open mind and a playful spirit… and maybe a favourite pen!

This is a Friends of the Wakefield Library (FoWL) sponsored program where we play with words and writing in a bunch of different ways. No experience necessary, just a sense of curiosity, a love of words and an inclination to shake off any creative cobwebs that might be lurking within yourself. We will use different short writing exercises to get the juices flowing. (We surprised ourselves on more than one occasion last year!) How you participate is always your choice, including whether you decide to share out loud what you wrote.

Facilitated by Linda Vanderlee. Maybe you have a writing exercise to share with us. Linda would be delighted to share the facilitating role if anyone is interested.

Poetry Reading with Pearl Pirie

Biblio Wakefield Library is pleased to invite you to a delightful poetry reading in its In the Heart of the Library Series.  In partnership with 100 Miles Arts Network the reading was indeed filmed in the heart of the library.  You can enjoy Pearl’s intimate reading in the comfort of your home knowing other poetry lovers will be watching with you. Pearl’s poetry has been called “sensuous and philosophical” an intriguing combination.
