Dear Windsor! There are less than 24 hours to go 'til our Mother's Day Weekend Birds, Books, and Brunch Event @ The Willistead with Lynn Thomson! Brunch will include a smoked cod rice cake and arugula salad, mushroom tartes, poached eggs, and coffee and dessert. Spaces are still available, and there will be tickets for sale at The Willistead the morning of the event! And last but not least, be sure to check The Windsor Star Saturday morning for a full feature on Birding With Yeats and tomorrow's event! We hope to see you there.
We all know that Mother Nature wears many guises, not all of them kind and nurturing. But in mid-May in southern Ontario, she is usually fairly benign. Most years our days in the forest or along the shore are easy – a gentle wind ruffling the feathers of black terns perched on a railing, or sunlight glinting off the backs of black-bellied plovers. We spend ten hours a day patiently wandering around looking for birds, and I consider myself lucky that something this simple is all it takes for me to feel fulfilled. - Lynn Thomson
On Saturday May 10th @ 11AM, Biblioasis and House of Anansi will be teaming up to bring you Birds, Books, & Brunch, a special author event and luncheon with Toronto memoirist, bookseller, and birding fanatic Lynn Thomson @ The Willistead restaurant. Thomson will be reading and discussing Birding With Yeats, a new inspirational memoir about motherhood and the family connections forged through birdwatching and nature. Join her as she takes us on a trip to several of Canada's most breathtaking bird sanctuaries, including our own Pelee Island.
Individual tickets are only 35$ and include brunch, coffee/tea, and a copy of Birding With Yeats; tickets for two are only 50$ and include two brunches, coffee/tea and a copy of the book. These make for excellent Mother's Day gifts and are available at both Biblioasis and The Willistead. For more information call 519-968-2206 or email Jesse at email@example.com. We hope to see you there!
