MAKER MONTH – Choose the project of your choice, preferably something new to you, though we’re flexible – brew kombucha, knit a tea cozy, sew a quilt, build a website, try a cuisine or a cooking technique you’ve never explored, write a short story or poem, perform a card trick, make preserves, plumb your bathroom, rewire a lamp – and come tell us about it. We’ll share resources – the titles of books, websites or videos that were helpful in achieving your success. Funny “fails” are always welcome, too – sometimes the best instruction comes from trial and error! Bring pictures, or bring the project, if it’s portable, and let’s encourage each other as makers.
If you like books about improving the quality of your life, establishing good habits, and living more creatively and happily, our latest book club is for you! In the course of one year, we will read, discuss and test-drive advice on tidying up, reducing stress, exercising more effectively, thinking smarter, and eating better, among other topics. Each month we will discuss the quality of the advice, the author’s authority on the topic, the practicality of the advice suggested, the success (or not) of any of the tips we try, and whether or not we think the book–and our new habits–will endure.
This group is perfect for light-hearted, open-minded, curious readers with a sense of humor and a willingness to try new things. Life 101 will meet every 4th Tuesday of the month at 10:30 a.m. in the gallery space at the Main Library.
