This Past Thur. night
I took in the Literary Night at the Artesian where it was a treat as an adult to be read to. It reminded me of my days reading “The Secret Garden” and “Stormy Misty’s Foul” to my four children. I chose this event because my friend and fellow mentee of the CARFAC.SK.ca mentorship program, Miriam Korner was reading from her book ‘Yellow Dog” the adventures of a sled dog. I was very excited for her to see and hear what all her hard work had produced for her. She also had a picture book of some of her artwork for children. Both books focused on her experiences living in northern Saskatchewan with her family, running sled dogs and a B&B. It was all quite the change for her as a newcomer from Germany.
After Miriam, Judith Silverthorne read from her book “Convictions” another book for young adults about women prison ships that used to sale between Australia and Europe. It sounds like quite the gripping thriller.
Tonight I will not be able to make it to any events but I hope you go and enjoy a few of the events and let me know how it was.
