Update: October 7
Thank you, Frances. It was truly a pleasure to meet you. Your quiet conversational style captivated the audience of approximately one hundred attentive participants. It was literally standing-room only in our local library. You held us with your stories and deep-rooted compassion for the human condition in all its diversity.
Mark this date in your calendar because you won't want to miss Frances Itani, best-selling Canadian author, who is coming to Beaverbrook library to talk to us about the writing life and her latest novel
That's My Baby.
