Still Accepting Spring Registrations!
Like in Mary's Secret Garden, the proud emerald shoots pushing up through the earth are the surest sign of spring. Snowdrops, crocuses, daffodils and tulips are testing the air and here at the Lyceum, we're ready to take some of our programs outside.
We're currently accepting spring registrations for those currently enrolled in our programs. For those who wish to join us this spring for bookclubs, writers' workshops and early childhood education programs, but are not yet currently enrolled, call or email for more information.
Call 604.733.1356 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to register!
Meet the Author:
Richard Wagamese - CANCELLED
Date: Thursday, May 23
Read Richard Wagamese’s Indian Horse and then join the author for a discussion about heritage, identity, and the importance of storytelling.
Indian Horse tells the story of Saul Indian Horse, who has hit bottom. Saul wants peace, and he grudgingly comes to see that he’ll find it only through telling his story. With him, readers embark on a journey back through the life he’s led as a northern Ojibway, with all its joys and sorrows. We have copies of Indian Horse available for purchase at the Lyceum at a 10% discount.

Upcoming Book Launches at the Lyceum:
Cinnamon Toast and the End of the World
with Canadian author Janet E. Cameron
Date: Thursday, May 16, 2013
House Parties. Pick-Up Trucks. Cherry-Vanilla Ice-Cream. Prom Night. Unrequited Love.
Welcome to the spring of 1987 and the world of Stephen Shulevitz who, with three months of high school to go in the small town of Riverside, Nova Scotia, has just realised he's fallen in love - with exactly the wrong person.
Welcome to the end of the world.
As Stephen navigates his last few months before college dealing with his overly dependent mother, his distant, pot-smoking father, and his dysfunctional best friends Lana and Mark, he must decide between love and childhood friendship; between the person he is and the person he can be. But sometimes leaving the past behind is harder than it seems . . .
Cinnamon Toast and the End of the World is a bittersweet story of growing up and of one young man finding happiness on his own terms.
Janet E. Cameron was born in Halifax, Nova Scotia and graduated from Dalhousie University with a BA in English before spending the next ten years traveling and living all over Canada. In 2001 she went to Tokyo for what was supposed to be one year of teaching and stayed for four. During her second year in Japan she met an Irish journalist, married him three years later, and moved to Ireland where she started writing prose. Cinnamon Toast and the End of the World is her first novel. Download our flyer here!
Primary Literature and Art Community Project
This wall is our canvas. Our Primary Literature and Art class at Christianne’s Lyceum has been invited by Highbury Towers to use it to create a mural that reflects our ideas about bringing beauty to everyday objects in our community. We will also be maintaining the wall garden with indigenous flowers.
Watch this project blossom weekly updates online and by the children at the site: beside Highbury Towers, 2020 Highbury St. at W. 4th Ave.
If you love literature and art and want to pass along that love to the next generation of readers and creators, this opportunity is for you. We are especially looking for help on Tuesday and Wednesday during the day.
