News - week of 13 April 2015
It is exciting in the spring to see the snow finally disappearing – and the beginning of open water. It will be a good long time before the boat will be in – but closer every day.
Spring is also an exciting time in the publishing business as paperback editions of last year’s hardcovers are published and many new books are issued in advance of the summer season.
It is also the beginning of Parry Sound Books annual reading series – with Terry Fallis to kick things off this Wednesday 15 April at 7:30 at the Stockey Centre - look under author events for more information
