Niagara-on-the-Lake Public Library Board Meeting Open to the Public.
Adult Programs & Events
Drag performance artists Fay Slift + Fluffy Soufflé invite you and the kids in your life to special events with books and fun! Readings will include their favourite books, and Fay + Fluffy will lead an activity, whether it be dance, drama, or creative arts. We want to support families with LGBTQ2S parent(s) and gender variant children, and read culturally diverse books, by providing a supportive and inclusive environment focused on fun!
About the readers:
JP (Fay) + Kaleb (Fluffy) are both drag performers and experienced child educators. By day JP is an educator with the TDSB. Kaleb is currently an independent Cultural Producer, but is also a child care provider, has worked as a “manny” for years, and had his own home daycare called the Trail Mix Playgroup (cuz we’re a little nutty but we’re good for you).
Set in the glamour of 1950’s post-war London, renowned dressmaker Reynolds Woodcock (Daniel Day-Lewis) and his sister Cyril (Lesley Manville) are at the center of British fashion, dressing royalty, movie stars, heiresses, socialites, debutantes and dames with the distinct style of The House of Woodcock. Women come and go through Woodcock’s life, providing the confirmed bachelor with inspiration and companionship, until he comes across a young, strong-willed woman, Alma (Vicky Krieps), who soon becomes a fixture in his life as his muse and lover. Once controlled and planned, he finds his carefully tailored life disrupted by love. With his latest film, Paul Thomas Anderson paints an illuminating portrait both of an artist on a creative journey, and the women who keep his world running. Phantom Thread is Paul Thomas Anderson’s eighth movie, and his second collaboration with Daniel Day-Lewis.
