Writers visit Fernie Heritage Library

Audiences at the Fernie Heritage Library have been treated to two recent guest author presentations. Mike Deas stopped by to entertain a group of elementary students, and Rita Moir paid a visit to the library to speak to a more mature crowd.

On October 12, author and illustrator Mike Deas spoke to grade four, five, and six students from Isabella Dicken Elementary School and The Fernie Academy. Deas discussed the process through which he created his most recent work, Dalen and Gole: Scandal in Port Angus, as well as the Graphic Guide Adventure series written by Liam O’Donnell.

The author offered drawing advice, tips on story development, as well as a hands on artistic demonstration. The presentation itself was funded by the Fernie Heritage Library and the Kootenay Library Association.

Hosted by the Fernie Heritage Library, Kootenay Library Association, and the Columbia Basin Trust, author Rita Moir addressed an adult audience on October 18.

The winner of the One Book One Kootenay 2012 author award went over the process of writing her latest book The Third Crop. Moir’s longtime involvement in the Slocan Valley opened doors for her as she searched for rare and previously unpublished photos from local families to include in the historical journey of the area her book depicts.
