INSECTUAL by Barbara Sala

Published by BOOKLOCKER http://www.booklocker.com/books/7890.html

“That’s where they burn red-haired girls as witches,” Maya’s mother said as they stood staring at the heavy metal door of an ominous bunker on their way to kindergarten. This streak of madness starts Maya’s odyssey – from war and betrayal in Germany of the late 1940s to adventure in Africa in the 1960s...

Book Launch, The Sands of Time, by Barbara Silverman, 23 May 2015

Author: Christina - Published At: 2015-05-13 10:45 - (1156 Reads)

2:00-4:00 PM

Book Launch


by Barbara Silverman

Readings, Discussions, Stories on Mythology, History, Astronomy, Wildlife

Time is like grains of sand. It obscures the past, confusing the history that we try to unravel. Presenting puzzles and forming mysteries that may or may not be solved. Sometimes the sand is visible, covering and hiding that which lies beneath. Sometimes the sand cannot be seen – it is simply the passage of time, forever carrying away pieces that we search for. And when the sands of time flow into the future, past that hidden veil preventing us from seeing beyond this moment, what will they carry with them. What from our time will remain? And what will be gone forever? That question is still to be answered.

Free admission, light refreshments will be served

Twelfth Night: Or What You Will

Known to many as one of Shakespeare’s most perfect comedies, Twelfth Night is a wild and touching story of a set of separate twins desperate to find their other half. Shakespeare’s stirring and memorable language is masterfully paired with hilarious physical and visual comedy, inciting tears and laughter in equal measure and sometimes simultaneously. This play deals with the nature of love and loss, asking intriguing questions about gender roles, identity and attraction. Timeless and thought provoking, Twelfth Night is the perfect play for inspiring dialogue amongst our contemporary audience.

Directed by Amanda Kellock

A Birthday Wish-list for ICN

Our ‘Indie’ Movement
The ‘big bang’ that sparked our existence occurred on April first—April Fool’s Day—2001. We were a ‘gang of four’ enthusiasts who got together at the (now disappeared) Café ‘Porté Disparu’ on the Plateau. Our mission was a bit vague, but we did agree on one thing: to reach out to emerging and actual self-publishers in Montreal. Back then, we had no idea how much our nascent venture was destined to grow...
