Tri-City scribes can look forward to two literary events next month — one of which is now calling for writers to present their pages.
March 6, Coquitlam author Beverly Ann Gyori will read and take questions about her début novel, My New Tomorrow, at the Tri-City Wordsmiths’ virtual meeting.
The book, which was published by Erik D’Souza, who runs the Wordsmiths’ events, centres on the character of Wendy who is making a new life on the Sunshine Coast. It is available through Western Sky Books in Port Coquitlam after March 6, and through Amazon.ca.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org for an invite to the book launch, which starts at 2 p.m. The Wordsmiths’ membership fee is currently being waived.
Meanwhile, D’Souza will also host the 17th edition of Writers in our Midst, a gathering to promote recent works and network with other B.C. writers.
The next quarterly readings — to be held on March 16 at 7 p.m., via the Port Moody Public Library’s Facebook page — are on the theme of romance. There are two presenters so far: Gyori and Lyn Ayre, a Coquitlam storyteller, photographer and perfumer.
To be a presenter, email email@example.com.
Writers in the Midst in June will focus on poetry while, in October, the theme is horror/crime writing.
