An Evening with Jane KIrkpatrick- Oregon Author night

Date: 

Saturday, April 28, 2018 - 7:00pm

Jane Kirkpatrick, an award-winning author, will be the guest speaker at an “Oregon Author’s Night,” Saturday, April 28, 7 p.m. at the Old Cheese Factory, 94179 Allen Boice Dr., Langlois.

The topic of this “Evening with Jane Kirkpatrick” will be “How Memory and Time Shape Stories of Historical Men and Women.” Besides being a noted inspirational and humorous speaker, Kirkpatrick specializes in historical fiction, often set in Oregon. Included in the topic will be a focus on A Gathering of Finches, which tells the tale of the Simpson family whose estate is now Shore Acres State Park. This book has been a best seller among coastal readers and is often a choice for local book clubs. Some of her books have been selected nationally by the Book of the Month Club and the Literary Guild.

Other books of historical interest have featured “real life” pioneers such as the Lilac Lady: Hilda Klager; Tabitha Moffatt Brown, “Mother of Oregon”; and Letitia Carson, one of the few African-American women listed in an early Federal Census in Oregon. A history of the community of Aurora has proved to be especially well-received.

This evening promises to be thought-provoking and should be of interest to readers in general, the many fans of Jane Kirkpatrick, and to history buffs. Those unfamiliar with Kirkpatrick’s work will be in for a treat. Anyone wishing to write a memoir and others who have seen the Dolphin Players’ staged reading of a play adapted from the book, A Gathering of Finches, may find the talk extremely engaging. There will be an opportunity to meet the author in person as a reception, book signing, and limited book sales follows the main presentation. Admission is free.

This event is sponsored by the Friends of the Langlois Library and the Langlois Library Book Club with a grant from the Curry County Cultural Coalition and the Oregon Cultural Trust. For more info: 541- 348-2507. Read more about An Evening with Jane KIrkpatrick- Oregon Author night

Natuere Time Yoga with Heather at Dragonfly Farm

Date: 

Thursday, June 22, 2017 - 12:30pm

 

 

 

 

12: 30-1:30

I am partnering with Dragonfly Farm to give you an incredible outdoor yoga experience every third Thursday in June, July, and August. Nature is calling, let's answer, yoga style!

All levels welcome. This will be a gentle slow flowing class with the intention of cultivating calm and relaxation. Come prepared to do yoga on slightly uneven ground, in the sun and possibly wind. Rain and wet fog cancel. Bring a mat if you have one, I will have a few on hand to borrow. A small blanket or towel, sunblock, hat, sunglasses and light jacket are all good things to have should you need them.

Feel free to bring a picnic lunch for after class and look around the nursery. Maybe you'll find yourself some nature to bring home with you!

Sliding scale fee of $10-$15/class with 25% of the proceeds going to The Trust for Public Land.

"Trust for Public Land works to protect the places people care about and to create close-to-home parks—particularly in and near cities, where 80 percent of Americans live. Our goal is to ensure that every child has easy access to a safe place to play in nature. We also conserve working farms, ranches, and forests; lands of historical and cultural importance; rivers, streams, coasts, and watersheds; and other special places where people can experience nature close at hand."
