Okay, so right now I’m a little excited as Thursday approaches when I give a five minute presentation at Calgary’s Owl’s Nest Books. I’m just one of nine local authors taking part in an evening for readers to hear what local authors are writing about. It promises to be a fun evening and Randy McCharles has arranged musical interludes between sets.
Starts at 7 pm and you’ll find this wonderful bookstore at Britannia, close to 50th Avenue and Elbow Drive SW.
I started this week Sunday listening to city author Daniel Goodwin’s talk about his first novel Sons and Daughters. The event kicked off the Jewish Community Centre’s (JCC) book week. This soft-spoken man read from his book and spoke of its background. I bought a copy and look forward to reading it.
Last night I participated in the JCC’s book club evening moderated by Michael Hare, co-owner of Owls Nest. He reviewed several books and invited me to share a bit about my novel Finding Dermot.
The JCC book week is a fabulous event and showcases great writing and the variety of happenings found at the busy centre located opposite Glenmore Landing on 90th Avenue SW.
