Book Events: May 5 – May 12

06 May


I’d like to announce a new series I’m hosting at Bookstacks – “Book to Film.” On the last Monday of each month, I’ll host a discussion about a terrific book which has also been made into a film. There will be more details to come as I work them out. The first book/film we are discussing is THE PRINCESS BRIDE on MAY 26 (in case you want to start reading). I hope to see you there. ~Dame Kghia

Moocher’s Meet Sunday Social

Shiva’s Home

In the winter we ice skate, and in warm weather, we go fishing! Shiva has invited it to see her new home and fish – or not. 🙂 Sunday Socials are slightly bookish, but they tend to be more social and cover a wide range of interests.

Second Annual Compliments Duel, to benefit Relay for Life

Caledon Loch Avie

JJ Drinkwater and Exrex Somme request the pleasure of your attendance (and your kind donation of Lindens to RFL) at their Compliments Duel II – The Return of the Backhanded Compliment

The purpose of the duel, as it was last year, is to raise funds for the Relay for Life. Five Judgeships will be auctioned to the highest bidder – the first judgeship sold shall be the senior judge. The panel of Judges will determine the ultimate winner of the duel, based on such criteria as they determine.

Each of the duelists will pay their opponent five compliments, with the first passage du politesse determined by a coin flip made by the senior judge on the day. There is no restriction on the length, type, nature etc. of the compliments (although JJ is NOT allowed to bring a library with him to the duel).


MONDAY, May 12, 5:00 – 8:00 p.m.
Story Session at the Falling Anvil: Bringing in the May

The Falling Anvil Public House, Caledon Tamrannoch

The Lusty Month of May brings with it Maypole Dances, frolicks in the greenwood amongst the springtime flowers, and suchlike fertile and fecund shenanigans. Tammuz returns from the underworld to dance in the fields with Inanna, Persephone is freed from Hades and reunited with her mother, Demeter, and Jack-in-the-Green bids wood and meadow put forth leaf and blossom…and we all take Mom out for a nice Sunday Brunch. Come and share your stories of springtime rituals, and all that increases and multiplies.
