Taming the Worry Monster at Practical Parenting

It's natural for children to worry at times, and some may worry more than others.  Some worries are more likely to occur at certain developmental stages or in certain situations.  Learn how to help your child (and when you may need to seek professional guidance) at Practical Parenting: Taming the Worry Monster on Monday, January 14, 2019 at 6:30 p.m.  Our guest speakers will be Sarah Cable and Kathryn Thompson.  Both are advanced graduate students in the UAB Medical/Clinical Psychology Doctoral Program.  You do not have to sign up for this event.  Simply follow the stars through the Kid Zone to our Youth Program Room.

Mortal Engines: The Book, The Movie

The Mortal Engines Quartet by Philip Reeve is one of my favorite series of all time.  I own all four titles: Mortal Engines, Predator's Gold, Infernal Devices, and A Darkling Plain.  When I first read them, I wondered if they would ever be turned into a movie.  I figured it would be impossible to do it justice, especially the roving cities.  But movie magic has become even more magical, and the time has finally arrived.  Mortal Engines hits the big screen this weekend.  And Peter Jackson helped put it there, so I'm more than a little excited.  Here's hoping it lives up to the hype in my head.
