Foolish love appears to be the Roux family birthright, an ominous forecast for its most recent progeny, Ava Lavender. Ava — in all other ways a normal girl — is born with the wings of a bird. In a quest to understand her peculiar disposition and a growing desire to fit in with her peers, sixteen-year old Ava ventures into the wider world, ill-prepared for what she might discover and naive to the twisted motives of others. Others like the pious Nathaniel Sorrows, who mistakes Ava for an angel and whose obsession with her grows until the night of the summer solstice celebration. That night, the skies open up, rain and feathers fill the air, and Ava’s quest and her family’s saga build to a devastating crescendo. First-time author Leslye Walton has constructed a layered and unforgettable mythology of what it means to be born with hearts that are tragically, exquisitely human.

You don’t have to weave on a traditional loom. Learn how to weave a scarf on soda straws. You will start the scarf in class and learn how to make pom poms to add to the ends when you finish it at home. No weaving experience is required.
Bring 4 ounces of worsted weight yarn. Bring more than one color for a striped scarf. If you want to use a thinner yarn, you’ll need more than 4 ounces.
The leader will bring all the tools and other supplies you’ll need to use during the workshop.
This workshop is provided by the Huntsville Fiber Guild.
