Estevan Public Library is gearing up for an exciting February, with a lineup that promises literary delights and creative engagements for the community.
In a recent interview with Jason Redshaw, the EPL branch manager, he shared insights into the upcoming events, particularly focusing on two authors set to captivate the audience with readings of their works.
Kicking off the literary festivities is Maureen Ulrich, a celebrated local author known for her Jessie Mac Hockey Series and Winds of Change Series. Redshaw detailed the upcoming event scheduled for Thursday, February 8, at 7:00 PM. Ulrich will not only treat the audience to readings from her beloved books but also shed light on her writing process, delve into her illustrious writing career, and offer a glimpse into her forthcoming releases.
The excitement doesn't stop there, as Redshaw unveiled another noteworthy author, Raquel Klassen, set to charm the younger audience on February 13 at 10:00 AM. A fresh face in the realm of children's literature, Klassen will enchant little minds with a reading of her book, "Forever and Ever." Redshaw emphasized the joy of story time for the little ones, making it a must-attend event for families in the community.
Intrigued by the rich pool of local talent, Redshaw noted, "There seems to be a big writing bug here, and they're good writers, too. Much of the writing deals with local subjects, which is interesting to read."
Beyond the realm of local authors, the Estevan Public Library has more in store. Redshaw revealed the Family Book Club event on February 10, inviting both parents and children to delve into the classic "The Mouse and the Motorcycle." This initiative aims to foster a shared reading experience, providing an opportunity for families to discuss the book together.
As the month draws to a close, the library is set to collaborate with the Estevan Art Gallery & Museum for a craft program on February 22 at 2:00 PM. Redshaw highlighted the need for pre-registration, emphasizing the popularity of the event due to the week-long break for kids. The program promises a creative extravaganza with activities ranging from arts and crafts to painting.
Estevan residents have a lot to look forward to in February, with a diverse array of literary and artistic events. Visit the Estevan Public Library's website for more information and follow their Facebook page so you don't miss out on the enriching experiences they offer this February.
