Mayne Island Reads 2018-2019

The Mayne Island Reads title for 2018-2019 is In This Together:  Fifteen Stories of Truth and Reconciliation.

The 15 essays written by indigenous and non-indigenous Canadians grapple with Canada’s colonial past and present, and explore ways to move forward with reconciliation and healing. Ten copies of the book were handed out at the National Indigenous Peoples’ Day event at the Mayne Is. School on June 21st, and will begin to make their way through the community.

Anyone hoping to read a copy can leave their name on the wait-list at the Mayne Island Library. This year the reading challenge will run right through until the National Indigenous Peoples’ Day event next June 21st, 2019.

Sunday Afternoon at the Pender Island Library presents:

The History of Writing with Dr. Sarah Rose

Sunday Sept. 30, 2018; 2 – 4 pm.

Humans have been using spoken language for (by conservative estimates) 100,000 years. However, the earliest writing system developed a mere six thousand or so years ago. Even today, of the world’s approximately 7,000 languages, only about half have a written form.

In this talk, Historical Linguist Dr. Sarah Rose discusses where, how, when, and why this somewhat ‘artificial’ aspect of language developed. Several of the earliest writing systems will be exemplified. So, put on your hieroglyphs hat and come and join us for what promises to be an entertaining afternoon.

Free admission, refreshments by donation. Seating is limited, please arrive early.
