Non-Fiction Book Club at Central
7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Join us for the Non-Fiction Book Club. This month's selection is Blood, Bones and Butter by Gabrielle Hamilton.

Before Gabrielle Hamilton opened her acclaimed New York restaurant Prune, she spent twenty fierce, hard-living years trying to find purpose and meaning in her life. Above all she sought family, particularly the thrill and the magnificence of the one from her childhood that, in her adult years, eluded her. Hamilton's ease and comfort in a kitchen were instilled in her at an early age when her parents hosted grand parties, often for more than one hundred friends and neighbours. The smells of spit-roasted lamb, apple wood smoke, and rosemary garlic marinade became as necessary to her as her own skin. Blood, Bones & Butter follows an unconventional journey through the many kitchens Hamilton has inhabited through the years: the rural kitchen of her childhood, where her adored mother stood over the six-burner with an oily wooden spoon in hand; the kitchens of France, Greece, and Turkey, where she was often fed by complete strangers and learned the essence of hospitality; the soulless catering factories that helped pay the rent; Hamilton's own kitchen at Prune, with its many unexpected challenges; and the kitchen of her Italian mother-in-law, who serves as the link between Hamilton's idyllic past and her own future family---the result of a difficult and prickly marriage that nonetheless yields rich and lasting dividends.

All of our non-fiction book club selections are available in alternative formats (eg. audiobook). If you require an alternative format, please speak with the book club coordinator.

Registration is required. To register, click on the green button below, call 905-668-6531 x 2020 or email askreference@whitbylibrary.on.ca.

Susanna Kearsley Book Launch at Centennial Building
7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

The Whitby Public Library is excited to be hosting an evening with Susanna Kearsley as she launches her latest novel, A Desperate Fortune, on April 20 at 7 p.m. in the Regal Room at the Whitby Centennial Building.

Hosted by author/interviewer Ted Barris, the evening will feature an onstage interview, reading and book signings.

A Desperate Fortune tells the story of amateur codebreaker Sara Thomas, who has been hired by a famous historian to crack the code of the mysterious, 300-year-old journal of Jacobite exile Mary Dundas. When Sara arrives in Paris, complications emerge from the journal's owner, the charming neighbour and the journal itself.

Kearsley, a former museum curator, weaves modern-day with the past to great acclaim. She is the winner of the prestigious Catherine Cookson Fiction Award for her novel Mariana, the 2010 Romantic Times Book Reviews Reviewer's Choice Award for Best Historical Fiction novel for The Winter Sea, was shortlisted for a 2012 RITA Award for The Rose Garden, and was a finalist for the Arthur Ellis Award for Best Novel from the Canadian Crime Writer’s Association for Every Secret Thing.

Barris, an accomplished journalist, author and broadcaster, has worked as a host or regular contributor for most CBC Radio network programs and on TV Ontario. For nearly 40 years, his writing has regularly appeared in the national press. He is a full-time professor of journalism at Toronto's Centennial College and author of numerous books, including his most recent The Great Escape, telling the story of the escape by Commonwealth prisoners from a German prisoner of war camp during World War 2,

Books will be available to purchase the night of the event through Blue Heron Books.

Registration is required for this program. Register online or by calling any branch of the Whitby Public Library. The program begins at 7 p.m. in the Regal Room of the Whitby Centennial Building, 416 Centre Street South.

Your Water Footprint with author Stephen Leahy
7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

That morning cup of coffee required 140 liters (37 gallons) of water before it found its way to your table—water that was used to grow, process and ship the coffee beans. When we spend money on food, clothes, cellphones or even electricity, we are buying water— a shockingly large amount of water.

Join author Stephen Leahy and learn what Your Water Footprint reveals and how water is essential to our way of life in ways we never imagined.

Non-Fiction Book Club at Central
7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Join us for the Non-Fiction Book Club. This month's selection is Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail by Cheryl Strayed.

Cheryl Strayed thought she had lost everything. In the wake of her mother's death, her family scattered and her own marriage was soon destroyed. Four years later, with nothing more to lose, she made the most impulsive decision of her life. With no experience or training, driven only by blind will, she would hike more than a thousand miles of the Pacific Crest Trail from the Mojave Desert through California and Oregon to Washington State--and she would do it alone. Told with suspense and style, sparkling with warmth and humor, Wild powerfully captures the terrors and pleasures of one young woman forging ahead against all odds on a journey that maddened, strengthened, and ultimately healed her.

All of our non-fiction book club selections are available in alternative formats (eg. audiobook). If you require an alternative format, please speak with the book club coordinator.

Registration is required.  To register click on the green button below, call 905 668-6531 x.2020 or email askreference@whitbylibrary.on.ca.

Green Your Home this Spring!
7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Spring Cleaning! Time to sweep out the winter doldrums and open the doors for Summer!

We all are aware that the harmful chemicals in household cleaners are environmentally unfriendly but in Canada, accidental poisoning by these cleaners is one of the leading causes of preventable injury and death among children under the age of five. The safest prevention is to avoid purchasing them. Become aware of which harmful chemicals are common in household products, decrease health and safety risks in your home and learn about simple, safe alternatives made from products you probably already have on your shelves.

Building an Ageless Mind at Central
7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Dr. William Tippett is returning with his popular program.

The brain, our ability to think, and our self-concept are so very important to individual lives, and the desire to maintain robust cognitive function is the ultimate goal for anyone concerned about the aging mind. Lifestyle strategies to promote brain health are becoming more prevalent in our society, but understanding what really works and why and how we need to engage in certain activities, as well as what effects one can expect is still not clearly layout for the population.

Thus, Dr. Tippett will highlight in his presentation the best strategies for building an ageless mind, with evidence from current research. In addition in his presentation Dr. Tippett will also examine one of the most profound brain aging related illnesses of our time, Alzheimer's disease, and provide detailed information on how this disease affects the individual, and ways to protect against it, and to alter its course even if it's been diagnosed. Better brain health is possibly for all aging individuals and by following a few guidelines one can expect to see improvements or maintained ability as they age.
