    Explore the history of psilocybin and its ancient Mesoamerican origins.

    This is a live webinar. Receive the Zoom link by using the “Register Here for Online Access” link above.

    In this offering, we will explore the historic, traditional and cultural uses of Los Niños Santos (“the sainted children”), the mushrooms we know as psilocybin. There is documented use of this medicine by the Mayans going back 5,000 years; another ancient, potent lineage is still practiced by the Mazotec peoples of Oaxaca, Mexico. Diving into some of these practices, we will shine a light on the complicated legacy of Mazotec curandera Maria Sabina.

    Discuss Everything I Know About Love by Dolly Alderton.
    Join via Zoom:https://us06web.zoom.us/j/83960512191

    When it comes to the trials and triumphs of becoming a grown up, journalist and former Sunday Times dating columnist Dolly Alderton has seen and tried it all. In this book, she vividly recounts falling in love, wrestling with self-sabotage, finding a job, throwing a socially disastrous Rod-Stewart themed house party, getting drunk, getting dumped, realizing that Ivan from the corner shop is the only man you've ever been able to rely on, and finding that that your mates are always there at the end of every messy night out. It's a book about bad dates, good friends and above all else about recognizing that you and you alone are enough. *zm*

    Examine child development through a social, physical, and developmental lens.

    This is an in-person program. Registration is required. Wearing a face covering is optional at all library events.

    Created for parents, caregivers, and those who work with or on behalf of children, this 2-hour training provides education and insight on the ages and stages of a child's development, examining each through a social, physical, and developmental lens. The training also provides guidance on how to talk to children about their bodies. You will learn about neurotypical childhood and adolescent development and determine what is considered problematic or inappropriate behavior in children and youth. Participants will go through scenarios to gain hands-on experience on how to handle certain behaviors, situations, or questions that a child may have with the appropriate response while remaining calm. The training is ideal for participants with or who work with children and youth ages 0-17 years old.

    KIDS Center is a medical model Children's Advocacy Center (CAC) providing child abuse evaluations that include a head-to-toe medical exam, child-friendly forensic interview, family advocacy, and mental health services to children and families impacted by abuse. In addition, our services include prevention programs to help teach adults in our community how to better protect children from abuse.

    Children are referred for a KIDS Center evaluation by one of four community partners including law enforcement, DHS Child Welfare, medical providers, and licensed mental health professionals. Children and families can engage in KIDS Center advocacy and mental health services without participating in an evaluation. All of KIDS Center services are provided at no cost.

    Learn how to spot archaeological conspiracy theories and why they are harmful.

    This is a live webinar. Receive the Zoom link by using the "Register Here for Online Access" link above.

    Comments about extraterrestrials building pyramids, or the moundbuilders being red-haired giants, or survivors of Mu or Atlantis being the ancestors of Indigenous peoples in Mesoamerica may seem harmlessly fun to entertain. Afterall, the television show "Ancient Aliens" is in its 18th season, and the Discovery channel has produced numerous documentaries about Atlantis. If these theories are being shared on major TV networks, how harmful could they be? The truth is that these theories are actually deeply harmful. Pseudoarchaeology, or archaeological conspiracy theories that propose alternative claims about human history like the examples I’ve given above, is invariably biased against racialized peoples around the world and seeks to cast doubt about their achievements across time, which opens it for use in dangerous ways. In this presentation I want to talk about what pseudoarchaeology is and why it’s so harmful. How do we tell pseudoarchaeology apart from just general misinterpretations of archaeology? How does pseudoarchaeology perpetuate racism? And how has pseudoarchaeology been connected to acts of violence, both past and present?

    Stephanie Halmhofer has been an archaeologist in Canada for over 10 years and have worked in several provinces across the country, as well as in southeastern Spain. "Currently I am also a PhD student in the Institute for Prairie and Indigenous Archaeology at the University of Alberta. My research examines the ways pseudoarchaeology is used by far-right conspiritual individuals and groups (conspirituality is the blending of conspiracy theories with New Age spirituality) in historical and contemporary North America. Much of my research is centred on Brother XII and the Aquarian Foundation, a conspiritual group with headquarters in British Columbia in the late 1920s, and similarities they shared with contemporary far-right conspirituality."

What Junie doesn't know is that her parents, Momo and Cassia, are newly estranged from one another in their adopted country. In order for Momo to fulfill his promise, he must make one last desperate attempt to reunite all three members of the family before Junie's birthday - even if it means bringing painful family secrets to light. *zm*
