New Year 2010
Happy New Year to one and all - I know it is almost 3 weeks since the beginning of the year. We have done all the end of the year jobs and are now moving on to plans for 2010. We have booked authors for readings - a mailing will soon go out to all previous subscribers - we hope to see you at the readings we will host in the coming year. Please look at "Author events" on our website to see who is coming here in 2010.
Congratulations to Joseph Kertes! He has won the 59th annual National Jewish Book Award for Fiction in the United States for his novel, Gratitude, first published in Canada in 2008. Joe is the Dean of Creative and Performing Arts at Humber College. The U.S. award is the longest running of its kind and widely recognized as the most prestigious. Joseph read from this book in Parry Sound in May 2008 and become one of our favourite writers and Gratitude one of our most recommended books.
We need to know if this web site is doing anything for you - and for us! We send it out there and wonder - there has been little response, so we do wonder if you find the reviews and other information useful - please let us know.
