Non-Fiction Book Club
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Come and join us for our Non-Fiction Book Club! This month's selection is The Wolf by Richard Guilliatt and Peter Hohnen.

On November 30, 1916, an apparently ordinary freighter left harbor in Kiel, Germany, and would not touch land again for another fifteen months. It was the beginning of an astounding 64,000-mile voyage that was to take the ship around the world, leaving a trail of destruction and devastation in her wake. For this was no ordinary freighter--this was the Wolf, a disguised German warship. In this gripping account of an audacious and lethal World War I expedition, Richard Guilliatt and Peter Hohnen depict the Wolf 's assignment: to terrorize distant ports of the British Empire by laying minefields and sinking freighters, thus hastening Germany's goal of starving her enemy into submission. Yet to maintain secrecy, she could never pull into port or use her radio, and to comply with the rules of sea warfare, her captain fastidiously tried to avoid killing civilians aboard the merchant ships he attacked, taking their crews and passengers prisoner before sinking the vessels. The Wolf thus became a huge floating prison, with more than 400 captives, including a number of women and children, from twenty-five different nations.
 
All of our nonfiction book club selections are available in alternate formats (eg. audiobook). If you require an alternate format please speak to the book club coordinators.

Culturally Culinary
7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Ontario, being one of the largest multi-cultural regions globally is privileged with a diverse population and a wealth of cultural experiences waiting to be explored. The problem is that many people are reluctant to step out of their own cultural niche and one of those reasons is simply a lack of knowledge.
Culturally Culinary helps to bridge that gap by introducing unfamiliar foods from different cultures in the hope that participants will feel comfortable in expanding their supermarket choices. A variety of foods will be introduced, and methods of preparation, nutritional value and in some cases samples may be made available.
