What are you doing tonight? If you are in Creston, BC, I certainly hope you’ll be at your local library.
Here’s why: Tonight is the long-awaited, much-anticipated book launch for Tanna Paterson’s Butterflies in Bucaramanga, which is published by NeWest Press.
The book is a fictional account of the journey of Creston miner Ed Leonard, who was kidnapped and held hostage in Columbia in 1998. Ed’s story is moving all on its own. And Tanna’s interpretation – well, it does this amazing story proud. You’ll just have to read it to understand.
I have not read the whole thing yet, but the few chapters that we worked on in our writing group were gripping, to say the least. So, I’m very excited to buy a signed copy direct from my friend the author, and then read the whole thing cover to cover.
If you are in town, come on out. We’ll see just how many bodies can squeeze into the Library conference room. 7-9 PM. Tonight. Creston Public Library.
See you there!
