Play examines cycles around incarcerated Aboriginal women

A Musta-Be: Maskihkiy Maskwa Iskwew , written by U of A professor Jane Heather, pulls from the experiences of Yvonne Johnson, who served time at the Edmonton Institution for Women after being convicted of murder.

The play  will be performed at the Second Playing Space in the U of A’s Timms Centre for the Arts for three performances – June 24, 25 and 26 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $10 at the door.

Wishlist now posted

The permanent wishlist page has been created. It is accessible from the menu on the right. We will try to keep it updated with the most recent requests from the EIFW library. If you know of something that there has been a request for, please add it, and if you know a request has been filled, please delete it. (If you have editing access to the blog, go to your wordpress dashboard, then find “wishlist” under “Pages.” Let me know if you need help.)

4 new Stephenie Meyer books are making their way to the library tomorrow! And I bought two of them so… that goes on my permanent record 🙂
