Author Visit – Lockey Maisonneuve @ Cranford Community Center
Feb 5 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Author Visit - Lockey Maisonneuve @ Cranford Community Center | Cranford | New Jersey | United States

Cranford author Lockey Maisonneuve will visit the Cranford Community Center to discuss her memoir, A Girl Raised by Wolves, which documents her harrowing story from childhood to the present day. This program has been made possible by the Cranford Public Library.

Lockey Maisonneuve is a survivor. As a child, she lived with neglectful, alcoholic parents, and was sold into childhood prostitution by her father. As an adult, she survived breast cancer and her mother’s murder. Today, she wants readers to know that she is not only surviving, but thriving. In A Girl Raised by Wolves, she uses her life‘s challenges and her sense of humor to provide lessons to support other’s along their healing journeys. At the Community Center, Lockey will read excerpts from her memoir and share the tools and techniques she used along her healing journey. Copies of her memoir will be available for signing.

As a certified yoga and meditation guide, Lockey offers classes for incarcerated men, people in drug and alcohol recovery, mental health patients and students in inner-city schools. Lockey’s unique experiences give her credibility to share mindfulness programs in these marginalized communities.

According to Lockey, “Healing trauma is not a one-and-done event.” In her classes and workshops, Maisonneuve incorporates her own experiences with managing flashbacks, triggers, anxiety, and rage. Her Jersey girl sarcasm, which shines through in her memoir, helps her to connect with her participants.

No registration is required for this free event. The Cranford Community Center is accessible to all. To learn more about Lockey and her memoir, visit www.agirlraisedbywolves.com. For more information about the Cranford Public Library, visit www.cranfordlibrary.org.

“The Joy of Backyard Bird Feeding” @ Cranford Community Center

“The Joy of Backyard Bird Feeding” @ Cranford Community Center | Cranford | New Jersey | United States
Please join the Hanson Park Conservancy on Tuesday, February 12th at 7:00 PM at the Cranford Community Center for the presentation, “The Joy of Backyard Bird Feeding.” Pete Axelrod from Wild Birds Unlimited of Scotch Plains will discuss how attracting birds is a great way to bring us closer to nature while offering hours of enjoyment.  This program familiarizes participants with using bird feeders, water and shelter to attract native birds. In addition, we will learn about unique and interesting bird behavior.  For example, the male Northern Cardinal feeds its mate in courtship.  We will also learn how to discourage nuisance animals and how to make our properties bird-friendly.  Birds add another dimension to the artistry of a garden with their striking colors, behaviors and allure of their songs!
 
Pete has been a nature enthusiast since the age of five.  His passion led him to study Wildlife Biology and Natural History Interpretation.  Pete has volunteered in avian population studies, wild bird rehabilitation, habitat restoration, wildlife education and birding ventures throughout New Jersey (with NJ Audubon, Friends of Great Swamp National Wildlife Refuge and The Raptor Trust). He enjoys cycling, kayaking and hiking and always has his binoculars handy!  
 
The Cranford Community Center is located at 220 Walnut Ave. in Cranford, NJ.  The program is free and open to the public.  No registration is required, but seating is available on a first-come, first-serve basis.  This presentation is sponsored by the Hanson Park Conservancy.  To learn more, please visit our website, www.hansonparkconservancy.com or like us on Facebook.
