    On Wednesday May 8 from 7:00 pm till 9:00 pm, Lynn FORTIN will present the excellent book SWEETNESS IN THE BELLY" written by Camilla GIBB who was English-born but grew up in Toronto.  

    Camilia Gibb received a Bachelor of Arts degree in anthropology and Middle Eastern studies from the University of Toronto and a Doctor of Philosophy in social anthropology from the University of Oxford. In 2000, she left academia in order to pursue writing full time.

    This book is the story of what happens to a young Irish girl abandoned in Morocco when her parents are murdered. Alone in the world, her search for home and family takes her down some surprising paths.

    On Wednesday 10 July from 7:00 pm till 9:00 pmLynn FORTIN will present for us the book : “DO NOT SAY WE HAVE NOTHING” written by the Canadian author, Madeleine THIEN.  Her books have been translated in more than 25 languages!

    Madeleine Thien born in B.C. studied dance before getting a Masters in Fine Arts from the University of B.C. and switching to creative writing.  Many of her works focus on the theme of time in connection to places and human emotion.

    Master storyteller Madeleine Thien takes us inside an extended family in China, showing us the lives of two successive generations—those who lived through Mao’s Cultural Revolution and their children, who became the students protesting in Tiananmen Square. At the center of this epic story are two young women, Marie and Ai-Ming. Through their relationship Marie strives to piece together the tale of her fractured family in present-day Vancouver, seeking answers in the fragile layers of their collective story. Her quest will unveil how Kai, her enigmatic father, a talented pianist, and Ai-Ming’s father, the shy and brilliant composer, Sparrow, along with the violin prodigy Zhuli were forced to reimagine their artistic and private selves during China’s political campaigns and how their fates reverberate through the years with lasting consequences.

    With maturity and sophistication, humor and beauty, Thien has crafted a novel that is at once intimate and grandly political, rooted in the details of life inside China yet transcendent in its universality.

    Memorial Day...
    Why Should We Remember Them?



    "HERE RESTS IN HONORED GLORY AN AMERICAN SOLDIER KNOWN BUT TO GOD"

    American Memorial Day is here again, with events planned for the weekend of May 25 and 26. For Americans living in the United States, Memorial Day is a day off from work, with family picnics, and unbeatable sales. However, when you reside in Belgium, it is the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for your family to experience what Memorial Day is all about. Commemorations of America’s commitment to guarantee freedom for the U.S., her friends and allies have been held each Memorial Day weekend in Belgium since 1923. One meaningful role Americans play during their years here is taking part in these ceremonies. If you haven’t done so already, don’t miss this opportunity. Attending a Memorial Day ceremony is a chance to reflect upon the freedom we enjoy today, paid for in the 20th century by over 345,000 brave American men and women who died during World Wars I and II.

    Over 14,000 American servicemen are buried in Belgium in three American military cemeteries. United States Military Representatives and senior Belgian politicians offer their tributes. Belgian schoolchildren sing both The Star Spangled Banner and the Belgian national anthem, and deliver special poetic tributes at some cemeteries. The uplifting and dignified ceremonies help us to recall the self-evident truths that are the foundation of America itself, “…that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

    Everyone is invited to attend the Memorial Day ceremonies in grateful remembrance. You can also help to honor these brave soldiers and airmen by making a contribution to the AOMDA Foundation [ING account BE19310120214412 – BBRUBEBB]. A volunteer, non-profit organization supported solely by private donations, all money is used to ensure that the sacrifices of yesterday will never be forgotten, with special emphasis paid to youth outreach programs that perpetuate remembrance and understanding among future generations.

    Date: Saturday and Sunday 25 and 26 May 2019
    Time and place: various locations

    A Walking Tour of Leuven 

    Saturday, June  15, 2019 - 2:15 p.m.

      

    Join us on Saturday, June 15 for a very special and unusual walking tour entitled “Tall Tales of Leuven.”

    Is there a Viking cemetery under the Old Market Square?

    Where is the belfry of Leuven?

    What is a Leuven marriage?

    How did the City Hall miraculously escape destruction during the two World Wars?

    Honesty is the best policy, they say. But is that always true? During this tour, you'll find out that an occasional little white lie doesn't hurt anyone.  


    The guide tells a bunch of stories about the beautiful city of Leuven: the one more unbelievable than the other. Some of them are so incredible that you hardly believe them. 


    At the start, the guide gives away that not everything will be truthful. There are some lies that have found their way into the stories. So you better pay attention! 


    After a tour of two hours, we'll have a short quiz while enjoying a drink in a cosy café. What was true and what wasn't? It's up to you to expose the lies the guide has been telling. And that always leads to some fun revelations! 


    Please note that this event is limited to 20 participants.

    Ommegang Dinner

     Friday, June 28 – 7:00 p.m.

    Once again, the ACB offers members and guests a unique opportunity to view the Ommegang procession on the Grand-Place while dining in one of the most elegant restaurants in Brussels.

    La Chaloupe d’Or is housed in a former 17th century guild house that overlooks the Grand-Place. From the balcony and windows of a large private dining room, we will have an unparalleled view of the Ommegang as the pageant unfolds on one of the most beautiful squares in the world.


    Menu "Made in Belgium"

    Cash Bar Apéritif

    • • •

    Carpaccio de Saumon et Coquilles Saint Jacques

    • • •

    Choice of

    Cabillaud à l’Ostendaise

    Entrecôte, Sauce au Choix

    • • •

    Crêpes à l’Orange Caramélisée

    (half a bottle of wine and water per person

    included)


    The Ommegang takes place on Friday, June 28. Ommegang (literally “walk-around”) is a faithful recreation of a splendid pageant that was first performed in 1549 for Emperor Charles V, his son Philip II, and the knights of the Order of the Golden Fleece.

    Staged at night on the illuminated Grand-Place, the two-hour extravaganza includes flag-throwers, folk dancers, archers, acrobats, jesters, jugglers, fire-eaters, falcon-trainers, folkloric giants, stilt-walkers, and the famous Gilles of Binche. Descendants of the nobility of the time play the roles and wear the coats of arms and sumptuous costumes of their ancestors.

    This is a spectacular affair, and one of the biggest festivals in the country. Our dinner evening at Le Chaloupe d’Or offers, literally and figuratively, a window on this amazing event. Bring your camera.

    Please note that this is a Members Priority event (ACB, AWCB, CCB and Irish Club of Belgium). Non-members may sign up as of June 17.
