Sacred Wisdom of Geek Culture & Tarot

Time: 6:30pm - 8:30pm
Where: The Yoga Studio - Centre for Spiritual Development & Growth, 9819 Fifth Street, Sidney
Cost: $5 at the door

Forget what you think you know about Tarot or nerd culture. In community spirit and support of the Sidney Comic Book Festival, Alison Spokes presents a comparative analysis between the wisdom of Tarot and that demonstrated by our favourite characters in novels, video games, movies and comic books. Her presentation will bridge the gap between geeks and gurus by connecting the collective human wisdom shared by them both.

An Evening with Jennifer Manuel & Anny Scoones


Time: 7pm (doors open at 6:30)
Where: SHOAL Centre
Cost: $10 at Tanner’s Books or online

 Join us on May 12 as the Sidney & Peninsula Literary Festival Society and Tanner’s Books co-host their final Spring reading. Vancouver Island authors Jennifer Manuel and Amy Scoones will read from recent works.

Jennifer Manuel is a long-time activist in Aboriginal issues and has taught school in the lands of the Tahltan and Nuu-chah- nulth peoples. Her debut novel, The Heaviness of Things that Float, deftly explores the delicate dynamic between First Nations communities and non-native outsiders.

Anny Scoones tilled her life on a heritage farm in North Saanich, and in Victoria, to create several charming books. These include: Home, Home and Away, True Home, and Hometown. Her latest book, Last Dance in Shediac, is a memoir about her mother who was celebrated Canadian artist Molly Lamb Bobak.
