Image Transfer & More

TapeTransfer (1)

“Image Transfer” is a great way to include images, text, photos, and more into mixed media pieces like collage and jewelry. While there are many image transfer techniques, we will be using a cheap, quick, and easy process that uses simple packing tape. So bring your own images or use our magazines to create some fun art that we will turn into buttons, collages, and more!

Date: Monday, November 24

Time: 3:30pm-5:30pm

Place: HCCC Library Makerspace – Main Library (L116)

Free, but registration is required. Click here to register: www.hccclibrary-imagetransfer.eventbrite.com

Leisure Reading

dearCommitteeDear Committee Members by Julie Schumacher PS3569 .C5548 D34 NHC

An uninspired, recently divorced, facetious writer of recommendation letters shows his literary chops in the only missives he can still publish: emails and recommendation letters. The main character shows a flair for illustrative writing and biting cynicism, which reflects a valid social outrage, especially in the world of academia, and the huge passive-aggressive nature of the narrator. Other books by Shumacher include: The Books of One Hundred Truths; An Explanation for Chaos; and The Body is Water. ~Cynthia

LastDaysCalifornia

The Last Days of California by Mary Miller PS3613.I5446L37 NHC

 Miller’s depiction of a family road trip to reach California before the Rapture carries the family members to heaven, is a story of love-you-one-minute, hate-you-the-next coming of age. This narrative depicts a teen’s longing for connection and feeling desperately disconnected; how the knocks of life create our personalities and the way we cope with them, even more. Anyone whose had an older, domineering sister will proably relate to the dialogue between Jess and Elise. ~Cynthia

Five Days Left by Julie Lawson Timmer

 The intertwining stories of people who make decisions about leaving loved ones is a well written story. The sacrifice and selflessness that one must demonstrate to continue on the decided path, whether it’s a suicide due to impending Huntington’s or the leaving of a beloved foster child, these characters go through much emotional turmoil. While most reviewed rated this book 5/5 stars, I thought it could have been half as long to be twice as effective. ~Cynthia
