Tales and Tunes with Tots @ Latham Library

A Playgroup for babies and toddlers and their caregivers.

We meet in the basement at Latham Library. Drive around the back of the library to the parking lot. Enter that door on the back of the building. Once you see the library door (inside the building), don’t go that way… turn left and find the steps to the basement. See you there!

Details:
~ 0-3ish year olds and caregivers
~ short active songs, short books and play / social time
~ infants VERY welcome
~ unshowered, hair a mess, everyone still in pajamas? Just COME! Really!! Nobody cares how you are dressed or how you look!! We are not a group that you have to get dressed up for.
~ Late? We don’t care!
~ New and nervous? We’ve all been the new one!
~ Also, NO need to leave the room if you’ve got a baby or child crying… we do NOT mind… Why do I say this? Because the parents that have frequent criers are the parents that take themselves out of (or keep themselves out of) social situations the most often and we don’t want you to feel alone.

Thetford Poet Elisabeth Horan Book Launch @ Latham Library
May 30 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Thetford Poet Elisabeth Horan Book Launch @ Latham Library
Elisabeth Horan will be launching her debut solo collection of poetry, “Bad Mommy Stay Mommy”, at Latham Library.  Thetford poet Horan found herself in the grip of postpartum depression after the birth of her second son.  In this debut collection, published by Fly on the Wall Press on May 10th, Horan finds the courage to survive, and she shares that strength with others experiencing this silent illness.
Horan finds herself influenced by the infamous Sylvia Plath, feeling an affinity with Plath’s own depression and turmoil as a mother.  “Stay Mommy is a poem I wrote while thinking of her.  To feel so bad that we might leave our children, is a darkness unfathomable to some.  But it is real.  I know it, she knew it.”
To preorder a limited edition of “Bad Mommy Stay Mommy” go to the Fly on the Wall shop: www.flyonthewallpoetry.co.uk, Amazon, or Waterstones online.  Also at Indie Bound: https://www.indiebound.org/book/9781999598631
