Meet the Author

Meet Author Amanda Irene Rush at 4 p.m. on Wednesday at The Champaign County Library.

In her memoir “The Gathering Girl,” Rush attempts to make meaning of the cumulative and relatively quiet damage wrought by her parents’ divorce, her mother’s mental illness, and a childhood in which she was generally left to tend to herself. Her hope is that anyone who has experienced adverse childhood events or who lives with the residue of a dysfunctional family will find solace in her story.

Tai Chi

Free outdoor Tai Chi classes will be held at 10 a.m. on Thursday near Buck Creek on the grounds of Ferncliff.

Enter through Ferncliff’s lower Plum Street gate. Wear comfortable clothing and bring a water bottle.

The classes are not happening on or near any burial space and participants are asked to always be respectful of the area. For questions, call Ferncliff at 937-322-3491.


Master Gardener Volunteers of Clark County are sponsoring Meet Me in the Garden for Yoga at 11:45 a.m. on Thursday under the Wingert Tossey Pavilion at Snyder Park Gardens & Arboretum.

Donations will be accepted. Bring your own mats, bolsters, and water.
