If you missed last Friday's book
signing, we still have copies of Eve McBride's book, "No Worst, There is
And we have your next two Friday
evenings covered - two more author signings.
Friday, November 14th: If you're a
parent, an educator, a social worker, a friend or neighbor, you will want to
read "What Time is the 9:20 Bus?". And you will want to meet the
author, Lucinda Hage, from 7 p.m. at the bookstore. The book tells you what is
possible when individuals with different abilities are given a chance.
Friday, November 21st: Interested even
somewhat in provincial politics? You should meet Greg Sorbara, a Liberal Party
strategist, a 25 year MPP, and Minister of Finance from '03 to '07. He has had
a front row seat on some of the most significant changes in Ontario history.
His book, "The Battlefield of Ontario Politics" is a must-read. Meet
him from 7 p.m. at the store.
The art display of Barbara Bickle's
work continues until the end of the month; come on a Friday evening or anytime
else to see this whimsical work.
Remember that Saturday, November 29th
is the annual Santa Claus Parade; you can see Arlene Smith's wonderful drawings
for possible parade costumes in the bookstore windows, together with great
possibilities for holiday gifts.

August's artwork is by artist Sonja Brown "Interestingly, each of these portraits is the result of a one session study, where I painted an old Masonite board that had a painted, scratched and generally distressed surface. On the advice of my teacher, mentor and friend Fiona Crangle, I allowed some of the previous markings to show through the images I was painting. The result was surprising, sometimes haunting and always interesting. I became captivated with the process itself and I painted a whole series of portraits and am now planning to work from my own photographs. I want to see if I too, can find in Steve McCurry's words "the essential soul peeking out".
