Shadows of Liberty

“Shadows of Liberty” Documentary Screening and Local Media Panel

Thursday, Nov 30th, 2017 from 6-8:30 pm
James McConnell Memorial Library, 50 Falmouth St, Sydney
 
The film “Shadows of Liberty” (2012, 93 min) documents the extraordinary money and power behind the mainstream news media, as well as its moral and social failures that have turned an arena for public expression into a private profit zone.  It picks up where the film “Manufacturing Consent” left off.

A Panel Discussion will follow to reflect on the documentary from a local media point of view, with Moderator Ian McNeil and panelists Mary Campbell (Publisher/editor of the Cape Breton Spectator), Steve Sutherland (Host of CBC Cape Breton Information Morning), Rankin Macdonald (Editor of the Inverness Oran), and Andrew Brooks (Publisher/editor of the Victoria Standard).

If there is any truth to the idea that one must “Think Globally and Act Locally”, this is a global situation we must understand.

Presented by Cinema Politica in Cape Breton (Screening Truth to Power) in partnership with the Cape Breton Spectator and Gryphon Media Productions.

Everyone welcome.

Author Reading & Book Launch

Author Reading & Book Launch:

The Red Dragon Girl by Lea Doué

Wed. Dec. 6th

6-8 PM

McConnell Library (50 Falmouth Street, Sydney)

Join local author Lea Doué for readings from the latest book in her Firethorn Chronicles - The Red Dragon Girl.

Princess Melantha is done with court life. After suffering humiliation at her sister's wedding, she's determined to find her place outside palace walls and far away from fickle princes. Hearing rumors of a curse breakable only by a red-haired girl, she says goodbye to her eleven sisters and sets out on her own.

Everyone welcome. Books available for purchase and signing.

About the author:

Lea is the author of The Firethorn Chronicles, a series inspired by fairy tales and other classic stories. Homeschooling and writing take up most of her time, but she also enjoys directing a small puppet team at her church. A native of South Georgia, Lea currently lives in Nova Scotia, Canada with her husband, their two boys, and three cats. But, sadly, no dragons.
