TMC is excited to present two new books this evening: Voices in the Wind and Paper Bird. The proceeds of the Festival sales of both books go to support the ongoing programming of TMC. So we encourage you to attend the launch and to purchase a book!
Voices in the Wind is a collection of writings from program participants at the Calgary Drop In Centre, Alpha House, and the Calgary Women's Centre with illustrations by community members from Forest Lawn, the Beltline, and children from Inn From the Cold. Expect a short reader's theatre happening as part of the evening! The book is edited by TMC artist-mentor Lea Storry.
Paper Bird, by award winning author Jan Truss, is a collection of childhood memories from the Great Depression years in England. The stories are set between 1930 and 1936, and follow the break-down of a young girl's world and her ultimate survival as a tough eleven-year old on her way to higher education. Expect a short reading as part of the evening! The book is edited by TMC artist-mentor, Sally Truss.
