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!
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?)
Books & Brunch with Armando Lucas Correa
Sunday May 05 | 10:00AM - 12:00PM
***PLEASE NOTE START TIME OF 10:00 AM***
Armando Lucas Correa, the internationally bestselling author of The German Girl and a friend of Blue Heron Books returns May 5th for Books and Brunch!
Armando is an award-winning journalist, editor, author, and the recipient of several awards from the National Association of Hispanic Publications and the Society of Professional Journalism. He is the author of the international bestseller The German Girl, which is now being published in thirteen languages.
Armando new novel, The Daughter's Tale, delivers an unforgettable family saga of love and redemption during World War II, based on the true story of the Nazi massacre of a French village in 1944.
Based on true events, The Daughter’s Tale chronicles one of the most harrowing atrocities perpetrated by the Nazis during World War II: the 1944 massacre of all the inhabitants of Oradour-Sur-Glane, a small, idyllic village in the south of France. Heartbreaking and immersive, The Daughter's Tale is a beautifully crafted family saga of love, survival, and hope against all odds.
Armando will be hosted by New York Times & Globe & Mail bestselling author Susanna Kearsley
