Author Talk - C.S. Hunt

Date: January 16, 2019 at 7:00p.m.
Venue: Main Branch (Community Meeting Room)

Join us for an author talk with C.S. Hunt as she discusses her new memoir: Scars Among Us. 

Catherine is a dream come true for her parents. Their first born child is their most precious gift. The love and joy they feel for her is obvious to everyone who knows them. When tragedy unexpectedly hits, Catherine's world is turned upside down and the course of her life is forever changed.

Scars Among Us talks about what many victims are afraid to talk out loud about. There is a taboo of shame deeply woven into the emotions of many victims of rape. The travesty of sexual abuse impacts not only the victim but all who are involved, including their family, and the family of the perpetrators. This is a book about hope, speaking out and normalizing the pain, extinguishing the shame and stigma of sexual abuse once and for all.

Venue: Theatre Gallery (Main Branch)

The Climate Horizon: A Lecture by Gwynne Dyer

When you talk to the people at the sharp end of the climate business, there is an air of suppressed panic in many of the conversations. We are not going to get through this without taking a lot of casualties, if we get through it at all.
 
This is the biggest crisis human beings have ever faced, and overcoming it will require an unprecedented level of global cooperation. But there may be a way through it.

UPDATE: No-fee tickets for this event are now available, with a limit of 4 tickets per person.
Overflow tickets previously picked up for the January 24 event may be exchanged for January 23, but must be returned in order to exchange. Due to the popularity of this event, exchange of tickets is not guaranteed.

Only the January 24 event will also be live streamed into the Community Meeting Room.
