THURSDAY, September 17th at 7pm: PIRATES!!!

International Talk Like a Pirate Day is a parodic holiday created in 1995 by John Baur (Ol' Chumbucket) and Mark Summers (Cap'n Slappy), of Albany, Oregon, U.S., who proclaimed September 19 each year as the day when everyone in the world should talk like a pirate. An observer of this holiday would greet friends not with "Hello, everyone!" but with "Ahoy, maties!" or "Ahoy, me hearties!" The holiday, and its observance, springs from a romanticized view of the Golden Age of Piracy.

Seanchai Library staff and friends gather in anticipation of International Talk Like a Pirate Day (September 19th), to share stories of salty sea dogs and high seas hi-jinks.

WEDNESDAY, September 16th at 7pm: "R is for RANDOM"

R. Dismantled presents randomly selected 100 word stories ("Drabble") live on the Story Floor!

 Long ago, he swore an oath to write a 100 word story every day until the day he died. He's not dead yet. Check out http://oneadayuntilthedayidie.com/

Always unpredictable and irreverent, no subject is too sacred, no cow too holy for R. not to pull it out, examine it, and bang it on the table a few times before putting it back where he found it - albeit slightly crumpled.

AND, as if that weren't enough, he looks *good* in black!

@ 7PM: The Griffin & The Minor Canon
Willow Moonfire reads Frank R. Stockton’s tale. Hearing of a stone image over the main door of an old, old church, the last remaining griffin flies down to the town to sate his desire to learn about how he looks to others. His arrival stokes fear among the townsfolk, who demand the church’s young canon go and learn what “the monster” wants.

Caring only for the well-being of the people, the canon escorts the griffin to his stone likeness, who is well pleased by the statue, regarding it as an “admirable likeness”. So much so, that he decides to stay, following the young canon as he goes about his daily tasks.

The townsfolk, however, are less than happy with this turn of events, fearing for their safety and what might happen at the time of the Autumn Equinox, when the griffin must partake of food. And so they conspire to send the young curate out into the wilds as the equinox arrives, hoping he will lead the griffin away and little caring if the canon lives or dies.

And so the stage is set for the Griffin’s nobility to be displayed for all to see, shining beside the Minor Canon’s innocence and shaming the selfishness of the townspeople.  Presented on Stream.

@ 7PM: Fireside with Bear
Bear Silvershade is back at Seanchai to share a few favourite short stories, starting with The Immaculate Conception Photography Gallery. Like all Canadian Literature, it is a little sad, a little funny, introspective and lighthearted, yet strangely engaging. Then it's time for a trip to Quebec cottage country with Stu McLean's Dave and Morley. And, contrary to what some ne'er-do-wells say about Canadian literature, there is nothing sad or introspective about this lighthearted little story. Well, except for Jean-Francois.
