Mother/Baby Café & Writers Group special guest author

 Rescheduled Event: The Writers Group Presents Special Guest Author Annie Dawid

The Writers Group presents special guest author Annie Dawid on Friday, February 9 at 2 p.m. in the Library Community Room. Annie will read excerpts from her latest novel Paradise Undone a Novel of Jonestown. In Paradise Undone, the author has written fic­tional accounts of a factual event. Her char­acters were all real people, although some of the names have been changed. Dawid offers up several perspectives of the event, sprinkled with actual quotes from Jim Jones. She offers a glimpse into the minds of those involved, and their stories are told based on the facts that she uncovered through decades of research. A light snack will be served.

Annie’s reading will be followed by a question-and-answer session. The event is free and open to the public.

Mother/Baby Café

Miranda Hanan is excited to be starting a Mother-Baby Café on the first and third Thursdays of each month, beginning Feb­ruary 1 in the West Custer County Library Community Room from 8 a.m. till 10 a.m. The Mother-Baby Cafe is a space for post­partum mothers (up to 12 months) to gather, connect, share stories and bond through the hardship and privilege of motherhood. Miranda will offer hands-on newborn support, postpartum education (including breastfeeding/baby wearing/belly binding/cloth diapering), nourishing snacks and coffee will be served. If you are not able to leave other children at home or with a loved one, a quiet activity will be provided for them. The heart of this group is to sup­port the mother. Miranda is honored to begin this journey; it is her desire to serve with utmost excellence and she cannot wait to meet everyone in person.

Miranda is a mother, herbalist, post­partum doula and breastfeeding and lacta­tion coach. She married her middle school sweetheart at 18 and immediately began taking Clinical Herbalism courses with a deep focus in whole-body Women’s Health. Miranda has served women for years in Des Moines, IA with everything from menstrual health/fertility/birth to in-home postpartum care and newborn support. She has been doing this work for nearly eight years and is extremely passionate about holding space and community for postpartum mothers.
