SNEAK PEEK #14: Westwood Library!

Kirsten Wurmann, Branch Head of Westwood Library, introduces UMP's Imagining Winnipeg talk/slideshow November 6. 

We had a roomful of people ignoring the U.S. election hubbub and the gloomy weather...including a intent eight-year-old who loved the banquet-in-the-sewer photo.

At the event, we had someone from East Kildonan request that we bring the slideshow to her neighbourhood library.

We've been chatting with WPL organizers...and it looks like we'll be taking our proverbial show on the road in the new  year, with two or three events at libraries around the city.

We'll let you know as soon as the dates are confirmed, but in the meantime, I thought I'd let you know about two upcoming events that author Esyllt Jones is doing.

First, she'll be speaking at the Fort Garry Historical Society's AGM on November 17 at 2:00 pm at the Pembina Trail Library.

Then, she'll be doing  a signing at McNally's in the run-up to Xmas.  On Sunday, December 2 at 1:00 pm, she'll be sitting by the cash desk with a stack of books and a bowl of come-hither candy.
