Did you see that our recently published collection of short stories - Every Second Thursday - received wonderful attention in The Sun Times? (See here.)
Every Second Thursday features work from six local writers (a few of whom have been your students): Jennifer McGuire, Wendi Stewart, who recently won an Alzheimer Society writing contest, Danuta Valleau, Allison Kirk-Montgomery, Elizabeth Warren, and of course me.
It also includes stories from guest authors who have read at The Downtown Bookstore: Allen Smutylo, Sally Cooper, Anthony De Sa, and Joseph Boyden (winner of the 2008 Giller Scotia Bank prize).
We're very proud of this little volume and hope you'll treat yourself to one. It fits nicely into a stocking and is only $10 (plus $2 for shipping if you can’t get to The Downtown Bookstore in person), so think of it for the coming season. It would also make a good book club selection!
A portion of the proceeds will go toward a bursary for a graduating West Hill High School student who has demonstrated excellence in creative writing.
