On Saturday, September 30, 2017, the annual Words in the Park event was held at Spark Gallery in Sherwood Park during the Alberta Culture Days weekend.
Over 32 authors authors attended. There were several book launches, an author readings corner, art displays, music, Scottish dance, food, interactive sessions, kids’ activities, and an appearance by Choo Choo the clown. The book fair and sale included a free prize draw.

This special event celebrated the 10th anniversary of Alberta Culture Days and Writers’ Foundation of Strathcona Country as well as Canada’s 150th anniversary with the release of this unique book: POSTCARDS FROM CANADA (Dream Write Publishing).
POSTCARDS FROM CANADA includes my family travel article, “Two Provinces, Three Weeks, 101 Experiences.”

Many thanks to Strathcona County Library for the pick of the week and to Mandy Eve-Barnett for the wonderful review of BEYOND THE PRECIPICE.
