The Comox Library invites you to attend a reading and talk by Nanoose Bay author Gail Boulanger on Nov. 13 at 2 p.m.

Boulanger will read from her newly released Adventures Over Sixty, a book of true stories designed to inspire, inform and invigorate. She offers reflections on and encouragement for living and aging wholeheartedly with our full attention and greeting each new challenge as an adventure.

Boulanger will also read from her second edition of Life Goes On: Losing, Letting Go and Living Again, a practical book about how to gently and effectively navigate our way through all types of grief and loss.

Throughout our lives, we become attached to people, places, pets, events and things. We also become attached to our health and well-being. When that attachment is broken, we grieve. Grieving is a natural, normal, healthy process of integration that occurs over time.

Boulanger has a BA in psychology and a masters degree in counselling psychology. She has had a private counselling, consulting, and psychotherapy practice for close to 30 years, and has worked with all ages in a variety of settings including business and non-profit organizations, schools, hospitals, and hospice.

This is a free event that all are welcome to attend. Two complimentary books will be given as door prizes.

For more information drop by the library at 1720 Beaufort Ave., call 250-339-2971 or visit www.virl.bc.ca.
