Spring Book Study
Health Council will hold a book study on The Spoon Stealer by well-known Canadian author Leslie Crew. This is Emmeline’s story, who never quite fit in her rural Nova Scotia family. She flees to England and builds her life there. When she unexpectedly inherits the family farm late in her life, she returns to her family, so broken by loss and secrecy. Full of humour, family secrets, and women’s friendships, this book explores the power of knowing ourselves and speaking the truth. The study will be held in person in the Fellowship Hall on Tuesday, April 18, 1:30-3:00 pm. Copies are available at the Kitchener and Waterloo libraries, or you may purchase one at the local bookstores. Check early as it is a very popular book. If you have questions, please ask Mary Slethaug or other members of the Health Council.
