Freestyle Friday: in the library

Is there any place more exciting than a library? For me, they have always been like Smaug’s cave: full of treasure. But not so dangerous.

And now I can add to the reasons I love my local library system: its Emerging Local Authors program!

This year there are again more than 100 local authors whose works are available for anyone and everyone in Greater Victoria to read…and isn’t that amazing?

My friend Margaret Gracie’s novel in linked short stories is there. Check out Plastic for a thought-provoking, wonderful read.

I ran into Bonnie Hardy at the launch, too. She and her husband Norm Hardy put together a non-fiction book to help people caring for aging friends or family.

Marjorie Lindsay’s The Last Singer is there, and so is Glenn Lindsay’s The Shoebox Mystery.

And of course I was thrilled to see Corsair’s Cove Chocolate Shop The Complete Series there, and Kiss in the Wind is available as an e-book. Thrilled.

Can you tell?

Wishing you a happy and story-filled weekend,

Rachel
