Discussion and Book Signing with Gary Schoeniger

Who Owns the Ice House?

Who Owns the Ice House? Eight Life Lessons From An Unlikely Entrepreneur co-author Gary Schoeniger will present on the fundamental aspects of an entrepreneurial mindset and the limitless opportunities it can provide. He will discuss the lessons from the book including the power of choice, recognizing opportunity, moving from ideas to action, and building community.

His presentation will redefine entrepreneurship as more than an academic discipline, with implications reaching far beyond the concept of traditional enterprise creation and small business planning. Entrepreneurship is a mindset, a framework for thinking and acting that can empower anyone to succeed, regardless of their chosen path.

Who Owns the Ice House? was selected as an All Pikes Peak Reads selection by Pikes Peak Library District. Gary Schoeniger will be available for a book signing following the presentation.

  • When: Mon., Dec. 1 from 5:30 - 7 p.m.
  • Where: Library 21c, 1175 Chapel Hills Dr.

“The Order of Things” and “Magnify” at Library 21c

"The Order of Things" - Johanna Okovich Goodman

Exhibits by encaustic artist Johanna Okovich Goodman and photographer Jeff Cloutier are now on display at Library 21c (1175 Chapel Hills Dr.).

Goodman’s exhibit is called “The Order of Things” and focuses on a sense of place through encaustic and mixed media works. Her work is influenced by her extensive travels in Europe, North Africa and the American West, and is on display in many collections, including the Smithsonian Museum.

Cloutier’s exhibit is called “Magnify” and features 24 portraits photographed with an early 20th Century 8x10 inch camera. His broad focus of work includes; architecture, urban cityscapes, alternative portraiture, landscapes and fashion.

Both exhibits will be on display at Library 21c through the end of December.
