Join Yotaki for an hour of Middle Eastern belly dance instruction. Belly dance is a non-impact, weight bearing exercise for the prevention of osteoporosis in older people. Many of the moves involve isolations, which improves flexibility of the torso. Belly dance moves are beneficial to the spine, as the full-body undulation moves lengthen and strengthen the column of spinal and abdominal muscles in a gentle way. Yotaki has a Masters in Ethnic Dance and has studied and performed internationally, including three years in Morocco.
No belly dance experience necessary! All ages welcome!

In honor of Banned Books Week, the Copper Queen Library will be reading and discussing The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood, which has been the target of several book bans and challenges since it was first published in 1985. The book has been cited for its “profanity; lurid passages about sex; statements defamatory to minorities, god, women and the disabled; violence; hopelessness; age-inappropriate; graphic sex; vulgar; offensive to Christians; violently graphic and morally corrupt.” The Handmaid’s Tale—which won Canada’s Governor General's Award for English language fiction and the British Arthur C. Clarke Award and was nominated for the Booker Prize—has always been popular, but it garnered renewed attention in the wake of the 2016 presidential election. Sales had gone up 200 percent since election day, and Anchor Books had printed 125,000 new copies of the novel just in the first weeks of 2017. Copies of the book are available at the circulation desk.
