gall-hearts-1b-s.jpgAnne Weissman & friends: Tin Hearts Transformed
Opening Reception: Thursday, February 4, 6-8pm
~ first Thursdays ~  
Picture an old tea canister filled with your grandmother's collection of odd buttons, or a heart shaped red candy box stuffed with postcards and Polaroids.  Imagine what a group of artists could make from thirty empty heart shaped cookie tins!  Anne Weissman invited a group of book artists, collage makers, sculptors and potters to take tins to their studios and transform them using the materials and methods of their choice.  The resulting artworks range from the contemplative to the exuberant .  They are as individual as are the hearts and imaginations of their creators.  Show continues through March 1.

Stump the Bookseller  Selection of the month

stump.jpgC638: Cat, Runaway's Nickname

1970s juvenile book. This was allegedly the diary and true story of a woman who went by the name Cat, who ran away from home and lived on her own, mostly in a tent, until her death.IIRC, she died from natural causes, and the story took place in eastern Canada in the early 1970s. I suspect it had as much basis in reality as "Go Ask Alice", but it was still a good story.

Praise the Unsung Book Club

fict-drabble-moth-s.jpgMargaret Drabble:  The Peppered Moth
Thursday, February 25, 7pm
~ fourth Thursdays ~
The multiple layers of Margaret Drabble's The Peppered Moth uncoil like the strands of DNA that are at its heart. The complicated story of who the women of Bessie Bawtry's family are - mother, daughter, granddaughter - reveal their code, but not their total meaning - which is inscrutable, as people are. Then they coil themselves about you, twisting you into their helix so that their story swirls about you and it's not easy to escape.
