$18, 000 RAISED TO COMBAT EBOLA


Guelph jazz legends Joni NehRita and Jane Ellenton provided the music. Former president of Medecins Sans Frontier and Guelph resident James Orbinski delivered a fascinating speech on Ebola and the politics of global health. Co-sponsors Chris Bedard and Janice Bacon from CIBC Wood Gundy in Guelph provided the food. The event sold out and $18000.00 was raised for MSF to combat Ebola. Talk about community power! WATCH


REVIEW: THE WAIT

bonnie

"It would be so easy to close the book, refuse to read the doleful facts and ignore the need. JOYce writes an estimated 75% of those suffering from a mental illness will never receive treatment, but she must not be a Cassandra; her own bravery shows us the way. True victory lies in action."READ MORE


REARVIEW: BIG

kane

"Big spends some real time with the fear and loneliness attending Josh's transformation. Yes, there's silly string and inflatable dinosaurs and floor pianos to remind you that Josh is a child in a man's body, but there's also Josh scared for his life in a New York flophouse, terrified of the situation he's found himself in. And there's Mrs. Baskin believing that her son has been kidnapped by Tom Hanks, fearful that Tom Hanks is harming him. And beyond the situational fear, there's the undercurrent of adult dread, of feeling ill-equipped--at whatever age, however big you are--for the real world."READ MORE


REVIEW: THE PAYING GUESTS

kane

"Sarah Waters has crafted a wonderful read in The Paying Guests. Generally, I am favourably disposed to reading stories set in or around the world wars and this one does not disappoint. The novel is billed as a murder story, but that's not the heading I would use, even if the murder clearly is a dramatic focal point that inevitably draws the characters to crisis points."READ MORE
