Join us for an enlightening virtual author talk with Kate Beaton, New York Times bestselling author of Hark! A Vagrant! and Ducks: Two Years in the Oil Sands.
Her first full-length graphic narrative follows Beaton after university as she heads out west to take advantage of Alberta’s oil rush. Arriving in Fort McMurray, she finds work in camps owned and operated by the world’s largest oil companies. Beaton encounters the harsh reality of life in the oil sands where trauma is an everyday occurrence yet never discussed.
Beaton’s natural cartooning prowess is on full display as she draws colossal machinery and mammoth vehicles set against a sublime Albertan backdrop of wildlife, Northern Lights, and Rocky Mountains. Ducks: Two Years in the Oil Sands is an untold story of Canada: a country that prides itself on its egalitarian ethos and natural beauty while simultaneously exploiting both the riches of its lands and the humanity of its people.

Celebrate the once-in-a-lifetime Vermeer exhibit at Amsterdam’s Rijksmuseum with guest speaker Avril Angevine. The exhibit brings together an unprecedented 28 of Vermeer’s 35 known works—even he never saw this many of his works together. Little is known about his life, but much has been written about his style, his controversial method of painting, and what his works tell us about life in 17th century Holland. Attend this special Art Talk Tuesday on this exhibit and learn why Vermeer’s magical works are so beloved.
Join us for an in-person drawing workshop with local artist and teacher, Janet Jacobs! Discover and explore the use of line and mark making to replicate textures we see in the landscape.
Must we draw absolutely everything that we see in a tree? How can five lines describe the volume of the trunk? How can just a few marks describe the foliage? These are just some of the questions we’ll work with in this one-hour workshop that will build from fun and easy warm up exercises to more prolonged studies.

You are invited to a riveting hour in this virtual author talk with New York Times bestselling author William Kent Krueger as he shares the newest book in the Cork O’Connor series, Fox Creek.
The ancient Ojibwe healer Henry Meloux has had a vision of his death. As he walks the Northwoods in solitude, he tries to prepare himself peacefully for the end of his long life. But peace is destined to elude him as hunters fill the woods seeking a woman named Dolores Morriseau, a stranger who had come to the healer for shelter and the gift of his wisdom. Meloux guides Dolores and his great niece, Cork O’Connor’s wife, to safety deep into the Boundary Waters. Meanwhile, in Aurora, Cork works feverishly to identify the hunters and the reason for their relentless pursuit, but he has little to go on. He knows only too well that time is running out. But his fiercest enemy in this deadly game of cat and mouse may well be his own deep self-doubt about his ability to save those he loves.
