KFPL's casual book discussion mixer returns to the Grad Club on Wednesday, August 28. Our August discussion will be a "Summer Reading Check-in." What books did you read this summer, and what books didn't make the cut? Did you participate in our Summer Reading Challenge? What did you think of it, and how can we improve?
Do you dream of writing tantalizing tales of your travel adventures? There’s more to travel writing than just describing where you’ve been and what you’ve seen. Travel writer Linda Kenyon will show you how to craft a tightly constructed piece that will bring to life the places you’ve been and explore their significance. Come prepared to do some writing — bring pen and paper, your laptop, whatever works for you — and to share your work. Free to all adults and new adults, but seating is limited. To avoid disappointment, please register in advance online or by phone at (613) 549-8888. Tuesday, August 13, Isabel Turner Branch, 2 p.m.
Get outside and explore! Cycle around the lake, try out a dragon boat or kayak, explore a trail, and find KFPL with our giant board games at the third annual Sydenham Lakes and Trails Festival. We'll see you at the Point Park in the village of Sydenham from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, July 20.
KFPL welcomes the Kick and Push Festival into our Central Branch with their comedy musical Stupidhead! from July 18-21. Performer/playwright Katherine Cullen's performance shares true stories about her dyslexia, the way she interacts with the world, and the way the world interacts with her. This event requires tickets which may be purchased online or at the Grand Theatre box office.
