We also discussed the film series held at UMF on Sundays. There are film schedules at the library, or on the website at www.xxxx.edu. Another idea was hosting a workshop at the library on how books are made, from the writing, editing, and publishing to the design and printing of the final product.
The books we discussed at this meeting were:
Our lives can be seen as a series of stories, either chronological or around one topic, or whatever we can devise: we can focus on the single day when life changed, the decade when our experience led us to a life focus, our lives with our families. There are no limits to the shape or subject of a memoir. The goal is to enjoy the exploration of memory and discover what we find, and we always find something.
At this workshop we need only bring pencil or pen, a notebook or paper, the memories we hold inside, and a desire to respond to the writing exercises Elizabeth will provide as a means of getting started.
Elizabeth Cooke taught English and writing for 36 years; she learned to become a writer by teaching her students, of all ages and types, to write. She has published two novels; Complicity and Zeena, and a work of non-fiction called Tong Ting Finds a Family, the story of her adoption of a two year old from China well after her first children were born. Now that she is retired she is undertaking a writing project, a memoir, about her years in the classroom and the moments from own life, and how each affected and shaped the other.]]>

Roger Bisaillon explains the theme of this year’s exhibit: “The ‘Spirit Animal’ theme was an exciting art exercise for the Portfolio II class at Mt. Blue High School. Each student deduced what animal represented them and commenced to illustrate their thought. These artists made their own choices on size of the project as well as which media would best represent their personality. This project is an extension of our self-portrait studies form Portfolio I class.
This artwork is representative of the artwork we are creating for out next upcoming art show that will be held at the Emery Center at UMF. The opening for this show is Wednesday, May 21st, from 5pm to 7pm. The show will be hung for three weeks for public viewing after the opening date. Come support our fine artists from Mt. Blue High School.”
