The Hundred-Foot Journey

Hassan is a culinary ingenue with the gastronomic equivalent of perfect pitch. Displaced from their native India, his family settles in a quaint village in the south of France. They plan to open an Indian restaurant, that is, until Madame Mallory, the owner of a classical French restaurant, gets wind of it. Her icy protests against the new Indian restaurant so near her own escalate to all out war; until Hassan's cooking talent and love for Mme. Mallory's assistant, Marguerite cannot be ignored.

Hair!
7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Hair!   The History, the Power and Symbolism of Hair from Greek myth, to Biblical times, to the present.

Carolyn Taylor-Watts’ fascination with 20th century Greco-Turkish history and its aftermath led to two years of research, travel in Greece and Turkey, and eventually to the writing of “Helena: an Odyssey” with her heroine, a hairdresser.
Based on a family's true story, Carolyn discovered “Hair is one of the most powerful and persistent statements of who we believe we are and how we feel about ourselves …”

Over centuries among different cultures, it has been considered glorious. Or shameful and to be hidden. The belief in its potency, its very seductiveness, is the reason the world’s major religions require women to cover it.

Join us as she discusses her journey from ancient to modern times and how hair has played an integral part in all cultures, religions and ages

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: The Stuff of Life by Lawrence Hill.

Blood runs red through every person’s arteries and fulfills the same functions in every human being. The study of blood has advanced our understanding of biology and improved medical treatments, but its cultural and social representations have divided us perennially. Blood pulses through religion, literature, and the visual arts. Every time it pools or spills, we learn a little more about what brings human beings together and what pulls us apart. For centuries, perceptions of difference in our blood have separated people on the basis of gender, race, class and nation. Ideas about blood purity have spawned rules about who gets to belong to a family or cultural group, who enjoys the rights of citizenship and nationality, what privileges one can expect to be granted or denied, whether you inherit poverty or the right to rule over the masses, what constitutes fair play in sport, and what defines a person’s identity. Blood: The Stuff of Life is a bold meditation on blood as an historical and contemporary marker of identity, belonging, gender, race, class, citizenship, athletic superiority, and nationhood. This book is part of the CBC's Massey Lecture Series.

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.

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.

Do you want to meet other teens, contribute to library services and programs, and earn community service hours?

If you are in grades 7 through 12 and  would like to get involved, come out to a meeting and see what it’s all about! Meetings will take place at the Central Library on the second Thursday of every month, and will run from 7:00 – 8:00 p.m. Snacks will be provided at this program.

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.

TAG
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Do you want to meet other teens, contribute to library services and programs, and earn community service hours? The Whitby Public Library is looking for members for our Teen Advisory Group (TAG).  This group will meet once a month to discuss books, programs, video games, movies, music, and more.  Participants will have the opportunity to share their ideas and help develop outstanding library services for youth.  As a TAG member, you will be able to create displays, suggest materials for purchasing, assist with special events and programs, and have a say about what goes on at your library.

If you are in grades 7 through 12 and  would like to get involved, come out to a meeting and see what it’s all about! Meetings will take place at the Central Library on the second Thursday of every month, and will run from 7:00 – 8:00 p.m.  Snacks will be provided at this program.

If you have any questions, please contact the Children's and Adult Fiction Department at 905 668-6531 Ext. 2010 or email askcaf@whitbylibrary.on.ca
