The Big Val­ley Li­brary is pleased to have Ca­role Lauw­eryssen come speak on her book, Un­speak­able Gift on Mon­day, Mar. 7 be­gin­ning at 2:00 p.m. at the li­brary. Un­speak­able Gift is the story of a woman’s re­union with her bi­o­log­i­cal fam­ily. Adopted as a baby, Ca­role was re­united at the age of thirty with her roots, his­tory and a prom­ise of new com­plete­ness. Be en­gaged as you fol­low her path through the un­known, not only through re­union with her fam­ily but also in a mov­ing spir­i­tual jour­ney that spans the decades be­fore and af­ter this life-chang­ing event. Un­speak­able Gift is a heart­warm­ing and re­fresh­ingly joy­ful story, both in­spi­ra­tion to the reader and sig­nif­i­cant to fam­i­lies of birth chil­dren and moth­ers.

Lavera Goodeye is an Al­berta-based au­thor who made her foray into the world of non-fic­tion through her mem­oir, Seven to Seventy: My Jour­ney through Time. Goodeye ex­plores ideas of con­flict res­o­lu­tion through the voices of her child­hood and the peace she was able to at­tain through per­se­ver­ance, de­ter­mi­na­tion and sup­port. Qual­i­fied as a group fa­cil­i­ta­tor and trained in Fam­ily In­ter­ven­tion and Youth Sup­port at Métis Child and Fam­ily Ser­vices, Goodeye pro­vides sup­port through her talk­ing cir­cles and heal­ing work­shops to adults and se­niors. Goodeye’s pur­pose and pas­sion lies in help­ing oth­ers strug­gling to find them­selves. Please call the li­brary at 8762642 to reg­is­ter.
