well” “How many do you think we had?” “I’m not sure, did you do a head count?”, “Oops, I think they are listening!”
Well, I (Prez – Carolyn) certainly enjoyed myself as did Veep Michele, our meetings and giggles over coffee through the Summer paid off and we had a wonderful group of folk at Tuesday night’s gathering. People opened up, questions were asked and chat ensued.
Merilyn Simonds gave an informative and lively talk about WritersFest, answered some questions as I scrolled through the web site hoping to add more visuals and information. I enjoyed looking at the photographs Bernard Clark has taken over the years of the writers.
There was lots of opportunity for chat and refreshing of libation and then we had three local writers/publishers speak about their own books.
Chris Laing told us about his murder mystery which is set in Hamilton Ontario just after WWII, I love a murder and hope to read it. Inquiries to email@example.com.
Hugh Barclay told us about the new book from Thee Hellbox Press ‘X’, by Phil Hall…a poem sequence in 16 parts. It is illustrated by Michèle LaRose and Hugh is having a launch at his house on Sunday September 15th. Inquiries: firstname.lastname@example.org
Rick Revelle introduce his upcoming book ‘I Am Algonquin’ which will be coming out at the end of November with a launch at Novel Idea. He will bring copies to our December gathering. Inquiries: email@example.com
A huge thank you, Merilyn, for being our first presenter and being so delightful.
I’m not sure I should thank Pat Shea for passing this on to Michele & me (eek!) but OK, thanks Pat, and for your confidence in us with your baby, and keeping the heckling down to a minimum.
Last but by no means least, thank you Jane Lovell, who comes all the way in from Hay Bay, for ‘personing’ the door and signing folk up for another year. We seem to be good with Janes that have a lot of lllll’s in their names? (Jane Thelwell was our last desk person).
Hope to see everyone down at the KYC October 8th for another get together with the theme of visual art…….
