David Earle: A Handbook of Ecstatic Survival

Sunday, January 19, 2 pm, Elora Library

David Earle, internationally acclaimed choreographer and founder of Dance Theatre David Earle, returns to speak with us. While David now lives in Guelph, he was resident on Mill Street, Elora, for a number of years and has a strong presence here still.
David will present through the focus of his recent publication A Handbook for Ecstatic Survival. He says, “I am a fortunate man, for I have been able to maintain my faith in existence.” We look forward to the promise he makes “for the curious, the hungry – those wishing for another window on Life’s possibilities”.

Chris Jess, Chef: The Art of Getting Food to Your Plate

Sunday, February 16, 2 pm, Fergus Library

Chef Chris teaches Hospitality and Tourism at Centre Wellington District High School – but he refers to his class as “The Food School”. He has a passion for local ingredients, and Chris is a leader in the slow food movement for proper preparation of real food instead of ingredients from packages, boxes and tins. Through the Food School and its effect on more conscious eating for students, Chris had brought CWDHS to national attention.

Tales from The Elora Community Theatre, in Its 48th Year
Deb Stanson, Gary Bryant and Julie Wheeler Bryant

Sunday, March 22, 2 pm, Elora Library

Three stalwarts will share with us many stories from our valued and flourishing Community Theatre over the years. Take a journey from play selection to closing bow. There is something for everyone behind the scenes.

Please be advised that we are cancelling our March 22 Art Talk in recognition of the Covid-19 pandemic.  While the capacity of the library community room is just 40 people and that is not a bad number for gatherings, the space limits the ability to manage the recommended social distancing during the pandemic.

We will keep you advised of a new date for the ‘From Page to Stage’ Art Talk.   This is a fascinating topic and we look forward to presenting the talk in the near future.
