A young author, a friend of Jeanette's,came to read her book to us and I found it most enjoyable.
Catherine Wiebe read from her book"Second Rising" and read most eloquently and expressively.
For those who are interested in a link to her work, please go to:
She was writing about her grandmother and in many ways, her grandmother could be any older woman and the wonderful memories of a life well lived.
Our group was larger than normal as staff members brought over some people from Rebecca Street. It was good to see them.
I was very pleased for the young woman who read. She was a very good reader and I am glad there was a good crowd.
All in all, a very pleasant afternoon was spent listening to her story and talking to her.
