Before We Were Yours by Lisa Wingate

 

Memphis, 1939. Twelve-year-old Rill Foss and her four younger siblings live a magical life aboard their family’s Mississippi River shantyboat. But one stormy night, Rill is left in charge—until strangers arrive in force. Wrenched from all that is familiar, the Foss children are assured that they will soon be returned to their parents—but they quickly realize the dark truth. Rill fights to keep her sisters and brother together in a world of danger and uncertainty.
 

Based on one of America’s most notorious real-life scandals—in which Georgia Tann, director of a Memphis-based adoption organization, kidnapped and sold poor children to wealthy families all over the country—Lisa Wingate’s riveting, wrenching, and ultimately uplifting tale reminds us how, even though the paths we take can lead to many places, the heart never forgets where we belong.

Tai Chi facilitated by Joseph Panico

Tai Chi is an internal form of martial art that is practiced for health and self-defense. Incorporating breathing with slow and fluid movements, the exercise connects the internal focus of the mind with the external control of the body.  Practicing Tai Chi ultimately leads to Improved Circulation, Better Balance, Greater Flexibility, Increased Energy and Reduced Tension.

Please wear comfortable clothes and shoes.
