Library hosts grief seminar, authors' talk

The death of a loved one can be the most stressful event in a person’s life. There is no right way to to grieve, and everyone experiences grief in their own way.

Beginning today, Thursday, Nov. 10, the Langley Hospice Society presents a series of eight free sessions for adults who would like support while dealing with their loss.

Each participant will receive a copy of Dr. Alan Wolfelt’s book, Understanding Your Grief, which the group will refer to, from time to time, as members explore the path to healing together.

Registration is required. For more information, or to register, call the City of Langley Library at 604-514-2855.

Choosing to smile

Stop by the City of Langley Library on Saturday, Nov. 19, from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. for a candid visit with Glenda Standeven and Michelle Rickaby, two of the co-authors of Choosing to Smile.

This inspirational book tells the life stories of three friends who “happened” to have cancer.

This will be a light-hearted event, with plenty of laughter. Call or visit the Langley City Library to let them know you’re coming, 604-514-2855.
