At tonight's Waterloo Public Library (Ontario, Canada) Battle of the Books event, the victorious storyteller was Janice Jo Lee who promoted Ragged Company by Richard Wagamese, an Ojibway author who passed earlier this year. Thanks to the annual One Book, One Community Waterloo Region event, I was introduced to Wagamese and his compelling writing, that allows the read to 'walk a mile in someone else's shoes'....and a reality check on our, and every, community. Great raw promotion Janice!
There were 9 other winners tonight who promoted 'Great reads' available at WPL or Words Worth Books
I was on-stage last year, and you all excelled. Scott Wahl Joe Pavia Mandy Bujold Fauzia Mazhar Jasmine Mangalaseril Kelly McManus Sheldon Pereira Alison De Muy and UpTown Waterloo's Patti Brooks!
