Literary Women & Wine Book Club

Literary Women & Wine Book Club
 Thursday, Dec 8th | 5-7 PM
Raven Cafe in the Wine Room

Michaela Carter, an author and frontlist buyer for the Peregrine will facilitate this book club with a focus on the best new releases of literary fiction. The group meets on the 2nd Thursday of each month.
 

The book for December is Our Missing Hearts by Celeste Ng.
From the #1 bestselling author of Little Fires Everywhere comes the inspiring new novel about a mother’s unbreakable love in a world consumed by fear.

“ It’s impossible not to be moved. ” —Stephen King, The New York Times Book Review

Our Missing Hearts is an old story made new of the ways supposedly civilized communities can ignore the most searing injustice. It’s a story about the power—and limitations—of art to create change, the lessons and legacies we pass on to our children, and how any of us can survive a broken world with our hearts intact.

Acker Night

Friday, December 9th  | 530 PM- 7 PM

Acker Night with Busk A Move

This is a FREE downtown event for everyone. The streets in downtown Prescott are closed and the businesses open their doors for a few hours for this wonderful evening event. The Christmas lights are gleaming, and music fills the air for this special time. All the "tips for Scholarships" donations go to Yavapai County school-age children for music lessons to those that may not otherwise get that chance. Depending on how much is donated year to year, we donate to our school district's music department since the arts are the first to get budget cuts. We also with donations permitting, have repaired local school music departments, sent special musicians and groups on to bigger competitions and have purchased or given instruments for those in need. Join us during this time of year in gratitude and generosity!

By Ellen Fischer

Ages: 2-7

Latke is one lucky pup! A family adopts him from an animal shelter on the first night of Hanukkah — and names him after the golden potato pancakes that his scruffy fur resembles. Now it's time for him to learn the rules of the house, as well as the traditions of the Festival of Lights.

Death Cafe

Wednesday, Nov 23rd and Dec 28th | Peregrine Book Company 4 p.m.

Welcome to the Death Cafe discussion group at the Peregrine, hosted by Dani LaVoire and Michelle Souza. We meet at 4 pm on the fourth Wednesday of the month.

“We live knowing that everything dies. Like the sun, it’s a fact of life. And like the sun, we tend not to look right at it. Unless you’ve experienced a recent death, it’s probably not something you discuss. But a new movement is trying to change that, with a serving of tea and cake.” 
–NPR, Around the Nation, March 8, 2013

About Death Cafe

At a Death Cafe people, often strangers, gather to eat cake, drink tea and discuss death. The objective is "to increase awareness of death with a view to helping people make the most of their (finite) lives." A Death Cafe is a group directed discussion of death with no agenda, objectives or themes. It is a discussion group rather than a grief support or counselling session. Death Cafes have spread quickly across Europe, North America and Australasia. So far, they have offered 7,584 Death Cafes in 64 countries since September 2011. Click here to learn more about Death Cafe discussion groups.
