Book Launch- Oct 26 (Thursday) 12:30 -2:00 pm…….at Room 215, Language Institute, U of R
“Powered by Love- A Grandmothers’ Movement to End AIDS in Africa ”
All royalties from the sales of Powered by Love will be directed to the Stephen Lewis Foundation to support organizations run by and for African grandmothers who are raising children orphaned by AIDS. Copies of the book will be available for purchase at this event.
A powerful statement about the book, by journalist-social activist Michele Landsberg: ..“We thought we knew what was happening in Africa when the AIDS pandemic raged across the continent, sweeping away 35 million lives. But we never knew it the way this book reveals it, in the shockingly intimate voices of the grandmothers who had to save the abandoned children when no one else was left alive. These voices will leap straight into your heart. Their unguarded faces, in portraits that glow with character, pain and humour, will captivate you.”
Scrabble and More
Scrabble and More will be held on Sunday, November 5, 2017 at All Saints Anglican Church Parish Hall. We’re adding Cribbage and Trivial Pursuit!
A Brand New Exciting Spring Event – Watch for news!
Our members are working on an exciting new event to be held in the spring of 2018. Watch this space for details!
ART from the ATTIC
With great relief and satisfaction, it is a pleasure to bid adieu to AFTA #5 until next autumn (although we will continue to sell art on the SNAC on-line auction this fall and next spring.) It takes a tremendous, collective and collaborative effort to mount this annual fundraiser, however Regina and the surrounding community continue to display solid support of G4G and AFTA as both donors and customers.
Swing into Spring with Rosie & the Riveters was a warm and wonderful evening of marvelous music, fabulous food, friendship and fun. Thank you so much to all who attended and all who generously donated time, talent and goods in support of the event.
