Where The Styles Brook Waters Flow: The Place I Call Home

By Lorraine Duvall
Tuesday, March 19, 7 pm

Styles Brook, in the towns of Keene and Jay, drops around 2,500 feet as it descends five miles to the East Branch of the Ausable River from its origin on Jay Mountain. Where the Styles Brook Waters Flow: The Place I Call Home is Lorraine Duvall’s latest book and tells the stories of coming to know and love the Styles Brook Valley and the balance of privacy and interconnectivity that is the way of life in rural areas.

Lorraine Duvall, Ph.D. is an award-winning author, who writes of her love of the Adirondacks. She has published four memoirs laced with history, including And I Know Too Much to Pretend, Finding A Woman’s Place: The Story of a 1970s Feminist Collective in the Adirondacks, and In Praise of Quiet Waters: Finding Solitude and Adventure in the Wild Adirondacks. She lives in Keene Valley.

Unitarian Universalist Church of Canton Presents

Last Flight Home

Wednesday, March 20, 6:30 – 8:30 pm

Movie reviewers have called the film “a moving, boundlessly humane documentary” about the final days of Eli Timoner’s life once he chose to die, at age 92, under California’s End of Life Option Act. The film explores one family’s gathering to help their beloved patriarch exit the world with the same dignity with which he lived. The story is an enlightening, often humorous, view of the universal experience of death. Following the screening there will be small group discussion circles to share perspectives on the film and, for those who wish, to learn more about choices in end-of-life care.

The film is offered in collaboration with Compassion & Choices.
