Sofie's Solitaires

Sofie lives in Costa Rica. It’s warm and beautiful, but sloths and bananas are boring. Sofie wants a puppy to play with. When Grandmother takes her to the pet store, Sofie is captivated by a cage full of birds singing a magic song. She takes them home but soon discovers how sad they are. What will Sofie do to cheer up the magical song birds? Colourful, vibrant images of Costa Rican wildlife and scenery bring Sofie’s story to life. Rhyming couplets interspersed with the text encourage young children to chime in, and an information page for parents and care givers provides facts about the Black Faced Solitaire.

Helen M. Woodhouse has been a writer, poet, graphic designer, desktop publisher, and stay­-at­-home mom. She has spoken to elementary students in the classroom, empowering children to write their own stories with her “Six Steps to a Story” project. Helen was born in Saskatoon and lived there until she and her husband Allan retired four years ago and moved to Costa Rica. When Helen became aware of the illegal caged­bird trade in her adopted country, a life long passion for helping animals in need inspired her to write Sofie’s Solitaires.

Final Response (Bookkus Publishing)

The polar vortex has grown stronger with every winter, ravaging northern cities and forcing an evacuation of a major city until springtime. Firefighter Captain Jack Sellars and his men are contracted to protect the city with one mandate: don't let the city burn down. With no power or gas, and all the citizens gone, what could possibly happen? When an SUV is discovered with a body, an AK-47, and diamonds inside, Captain Sellars and crew have reason to be concerned. They stumble upon rival gangs looting the city but are cut off from communication, isolated in a frozen world. In the midst of a gang war, the city begins to burn. For Captain Sellars, keeping his sanity and his men alive in a savage environment will require a miracle, and he's running out of cigarettes.

After 32 years with Edmonton Fire Rescue, Edward R. Yatscoff retired as a station captain and is the first author to write firefighter novels in Canada. He lives with his wife Gloria in Beaumont, Alberta.

Beth Arrison -- Live Musical Performance

Jazz Hear here.

"Singer/songwriter/pianist Beth Arrison’s second album, Chasing Butterflies, lives up to its title: It’s all levity, light and “up.” Arrison, who’s often compared to Diana Krall, is no stranger to space and abstract phrasing. This characteristic gives the music on Chasing Butterflies an off-beat jazz-driven quality full of eccentric moments that attract and meander. Vaudeville themes are checked and explored in songs with open-ended meaning...a vibe that David Lynch would appreciate." – Dean Gordon-Smith, The Morning Star

Speaking & Signing A Purpose Ridden (Rocky Mountain Books)

The path less travelled begins with a paternal taunt: “We’re close enough to home. If you want, we can call your mother to come and pick you up now.”

In the summer of 1996, a father and his 13-year-old son embarked on a 3400 km bicycle tour across Canada. Affectionately known as “Manhood Training,” this unique bonding experience became the inspiration for Ryan Correy to break away from convention and turn a passion for cycling into his purpose in life. The world’s most extreme cycling challenges serve as an evolving proving ground for the young rider. A Purpose Ridden is an honest and often obsessive first-hand account of becoming one of Canada’s most respected adventure cyclists.

Ryan Correy is an Ecotourism and Outdoor Leadership graduate who has taken on many of the world’s toughest cycling challenges. In between planning his next adventure, Ryan regularly speaks to groups of athletes about endurance and how to turn passion into purpose. He also serves as the Fueling Guru for Hammer Nutrition Canada—giving advice to amateur and professional athletes alike. Ryan lives in Burlington, Ontario, with his equally ambitious girlfriend, Sarah.

Reading and Signing page as bone – ink as blood (Talonbooks)

Death, desire, and divination are the threads running through Jónína Kirton’s debut collection of poems and lyric prose. Delicate and dark, the pieces are like whispers in the night – a haunted, quiet telling of truths the mind has locked away but the body remembers. Loosely autobiographical, these are the weavings of a wagon-goddess who ventures into the double-world existence as a mixed-race woman. In her struggle for footing in this in-between space, she moves from the disco days of trance dance to contemplations in her dream kitchen as a mother and wife.

Jónína Kirton is a Métis/Icelandic poet and author who lives and works in Vancouver. She graduated from Simon Fraser University’s Writer’s Studio in 2007 and attended the Emerging Aboriginal Writer’s Residency at the Banff Centre in 2008. Actively involved with the Aboriginal Writers Collective – West Coast, she coordinated the first National Indigenous Writers Conference in Vancouver 2013. In 2015 Kirton joined the editorial board of Room Magazine.

Kirton’s work has been featured in numerous anthologies and literary journals. She won first prize and two honourable mentions in the 2013 Royal City Literary Arts Society’s Write On! Contest and was a finalist in the 2013 Burnaby Writers’ Society Writing Contest. She is currently researching her next book.

Christian Animism (Christian Alternative)

Come follow the Cosmic Christ on the path of the green priesthood, deep into the heart of a living web of Divine Creation. "Christian animism," for many, can suggest nothing more than crude syncretism, or a blasphemous oxymoron. Shawn Sanford Beck challenges that view, from his own experiences and reflections, and those of many who find themselves on the fringes of church and society. He also searches out the fertile places of his own Christian tradition, seeking to hear a Word of healing for our Earth, a Word of grace for the trees and the animals, and a Word of invitation back to the garden of Creation, our once and future home.

The Rev. Shawn Sanford Beck is a priest, and trainer-of-priests, in the Anglican Church of Canada. He lives with his family on an off-the-grid homestead in Saskatchewan, and is the founder of the Ecumenical Companions of Sophia.
