Apparently Steel Wheels is currently closed, so we will go across the street the other direction to The Next Act 8224 104 street
Some conflicts with the group out in Stony Plain and the original date of December 14th, so please note that this meeting has changed to December 7th.
Apparently there is a late Oilers game on, on the 20th November. Sherlock Holmes has cancelled their trivia night due to this conflict, so we’ll join trivia the week later on the 27th instead.
Due to the weather this weekend we’ve had to push the fall highway clean up back again. Please join us on the 29th and/or the 30th.
Event details here:
We have decided to join in with Westwood Unitarians book club during the months that it runs. The events have already been listed for Nov, Jan, Feb, and March, so you can check out their upcoming book list. April will be added once a book title for that month has been chosen.
In the months they do not have a book club, we will continue with ours on the last Sunday of the month at Second Cup as per usual (with exception of December).
The FreeThinker Book club meets in the basement of the Westwood Unitarian Church at 7:00 PM on the last Wednesday of the month from Oct-March. The format varies but typically begins with a round table check-in and first reactions to the book. This is followed by a free ranging discussion, triggered by questions from other members.
All are welcome – atheists, humanists, agnostics, and theists and of course ‘free thinkers!!
Email from the library to ticket holders:
This morning EPL was notified that bad weather on the east coast has prevented Sir Salman Rushdie’s flights and subsequent flight from departing. Although all efforts were made to find alternate flights, he’s not able to be in Edmonton today for our Forward Thinking Speaker Series event at the Chateau Lacombe.
We are working with Sir Rushdie’s agent to find an alternate date to host this event and will keep you posted as soon as we have confirmed a date. Your tickets will remain valid for the new date; however if that date doesn’t work for you we will honour a refund of your tickets.
EPL would like to extend our sincere apologies for this inconvenience; we’re just as disappointed as you. Thank you in advance for your patience as we sort through these details. We will be in touch in the next week as a new date is confirmed.
