In the past few months, two new books have been launched by area authors. One focuses on a personal journey, while the other shows us the journey of the Slocan Valley.
In the weeks ahead, the Slocan Community Library would like to invite everyone to readings by these authors at their comfortable, relaxing and inviting Harold Street location on the main street of the village, across from the restaurant.
This Saturday at 1 p.m., Margo Talbot will discuss and read from All That Glitters: A Climber’s Journey through Addiction and Depression (Sono Nis Press). Talbot is a world-renowned ice climber with a compelling story of healing and self-discovery.
Bill Phillips, New York Times best selling author of Body-for-LIFE, had this to say about her book: “This inspirational real-life story shows us that our lives’ biggest challenges can also be our greatest opportunities for personal growth, transformation and enlightenment.”
Please note that this is a date change from what was originally advertised in the rec guide.
The second event is scheduled for Sunday, November 6 at 1 p.m. when Rita Moir will talk about and read from The Third Crop (Sono Nis Press).This fascinating work of non-fiction is Rita Moir’s fourth book, and is about life in the Slocan Valley from the late 1800s through the 1940s. It contains many clear, previously unpublished photos belonging to local families and anecdotal stories about life in that era.
Both books, published by Sono Nis Press of Winlaw, will be available for purchase.
Admission to the readings is by donation. The library can be reached at 250-355-2355.
