We are celebrating ALL THE THINGS
Canadian Independent Bookstore Day
Springtide Music Festival
National Poetry Month 2019
10:00 - 10:30 am
Monday, April 22nd was Earth Day
, but really it's Earth Day every day! We are hosting a marvellous Lorax party
for the little ones this morning (ages 2-6) with stories, crafts and fun! Every family will go home with a blue spruce sapling to plant and care for.
It's Springtide Music Festival
in town this weekend and Blue Heron is home to 3 pop-up events today! Saturday morning there is a calming yoga class led by Jennifer Bradley to music by Brian Wride in Blue Heron Studio.
Find perfect harmony within. Allow yourself to flow, syncing breath with movement, while falling into the rhythm of live music.
All levels and all abilities welcome. Bring your mat and join us!
Full Springtide Schedule is here: https://springtidemusicfestival.com/springtide-music-festival-2019-schedule/
12:00 - 12:20 pm
More Springtide entertainment with Isabel Madeline performing in-store - delightful!
2 - 2:20 pm
Brian Wride performing in-store. Brian Wride is an accomplished fingerstyle guitarist with a “voice like a minor key”
Ken Welsh will help us celebrate Shakespeare's birthday (April 26, 1564) in fine style. And yes -- there will be cake -- and many, many candles (455)!
Our Lorax party continues with activities for the older kids (6+). Same fun, same take-home blue spruce sapling to encourage all to nurture nature.
Spinal Poetry Contest. Walk around the store and grab anywhere from 3 to 6 books and stack them -- using their titles -- to create a unique poem. Instagram your poem (#spinalpoetry) and you could win an exceptional prize package. Tag @blueheronbooks in the image and remember contest participants must be at least 13 years old. (Contest is not directly affiliated with Instagram). There is also a children's category, so everyone can have fun creating poems!
If you choose, you can transcribe your poem onto a tag that will hang for all to admire on our 'Poetree' (see what we just did there?)
