Celebrate local authors at Mission Library

Head to the library Saturday and meet up with Mission authors

Celebrate creative words and the wizards who write them.

The Mission Community Library invites you to meet talented Mission writers Oct. 27 from 1 to 4 p.m.

This free event will include books on display and for sale, refreshments, and a rare peek into the writers’ world. Many local writers are participating in this year’s event, including Marguerite Antonio, Lori Boleyn, Helmi Braches, Theresa Chevalier, Todd Davies, Shelley Haggard, John Herl, David Pullen, Virginia Renaud, Walter Schmur, Daphne Sleigh, Tiffany Stone, and Sharon Syrette.

“Mission is rich with creative minds,” says librarian Diana Marshall. “The Authors Celebration is an opportunity to recognize the countless hours our local writers invest in their craft, and also for those who love the written word, or who are aspiring writers themselves, to discover a few writers’ secrets.”

Call 604-826-6610 for more information.
