Otter Books continues its “Take a Local Author Home for Christmas” series this weekend with two more book-signing events.

Friday from 7 to 8:30 p.m. authors Deryn Collier and Shelley Adams will be joining Otter staff for a festive literary party, complete with a sampling of delectable treats.

Collier will be reading from her popular mystery novel, Confined Space, a story set in a small BC mountain town with a brewery (sounds a lot like Nelson). Shortlisted for the Arthur Ellis Award, this is Colliers debut novel. Collier, a graduate of McGill University, lives and writes in Nelson.

Shelley Adams will be talking about the creation of her three runaway bestselling Whitewater Cooks cookbooks. Adams, a well known Kootenayite, and former co-owner of the Whitewater Ski Resort, has achieved immense success with her cookbooks, originally based on recipes from the ski hill’s Fast Tracks Café. Adams attended the famous Ecole de Cuisine Varenne cooking school in Paris and spent 15 years as a caterer to the West Coast film industry.

On Saturday, December 8, from 1 to 3 pm, Blaise Enright will be at Otter Books signing copies of 111 West Coast Literary Portraits, a gorgeous new coffee table book featuring rare portraits of well-known and emerging writers who have lived in BC, accompanied by excerpts of their writing. Enright will be happy to discuss her role photographing many of BC finest writers, and refreshments will be served.

Further events will feature Rosa Jordan on December 14 and Anne Degrace on December 15.
