Join us after school today, Thursday April 30th as the Library co-hosts a screening of Songs for Alexis
- D: Elvira Lind | Demark | 75 minutes | English
- Two passionate teenagers are stuck in suburbia navigating their love story and its place in the world. When 16-year-old Alexis’ parents disapprove of her 18-year-old boyfriend Ryan, the talented transgender musician wonders if he’ll be left all alone.
Enter the 2nd Annual ESA Poetry Contest.
- Submissions are due to the Library by tomorrow, Friday May 1st (it was actually supposed to be today bu I’ve kept announcing tomorrow – Friday – so tomorrow it is).
- Additional details on the posters posted around the school (or by clicking on the image attached below).
This year’s theme is “Food and Poetry”… the same as this year’s theme for National Poetry Month. Learn more about the theme at the Canadian League of Poets website.
The Library will be closed at lunch today for in school finals for Poetry Slam. Admission by invitation only. Good luck to all participating students.
Join us today, Wednesday April 29th, after school for a screening of The Crash Reel
- D: Lucy Walker | USA | 109 minutes | English
- At the height of his career, just days away from the Olympics, championship snowboarder Kevin Pearce was left fighting for his life after a major brain trauma. The Crash Reel is a high adrenaline film about discovering what’s most important.
Just a quick reminder that there are 4 – yes, just 4 – days left to enter the 2nd Annual ESA Poetry Contest. Full details are available in this prior posting at the ESA Library Blog.
Unfortunately, the Library will be closed after school today. The TDSB has booked the Library this afternoon and evening for a hiring fair.
Back to business as usual – including another HotDocs screening – tomorrow.
So we were too busy in here this morning for me to get a posting out, but… that doesn’t mean I can’t still post after the fact. So, here goes…
Thank you to everyone who cooked, baked, helped with set-up and clean-up… and especially to everyone who came out to eat. Another great Community Luncheon – our last for this school year – done and what a meal it was.
We will be sending $400 to relief efforts in the wake of this past weekend’s devastating earthquake in Nepal.
See you again for another Great Soup in the fall.
