About 80 seniors dined together at their monthly luncheon at Wilmot Centre Missionary Church, near New Hamburg, Ontario. My good and talented friend Carol Weicker sang a duet with me for old time’s sake, and then I had the hour to tell my story and sing for the group. Lots of laughter and a few tears. God is good.
If you have a few minutes, go to Carol’s website to hear her sing and read her story: http://www.carolweicker.ca/music.html
A Second Cup Of Hot Apple Cider is now a Canadian best seller. 15 of the stories in the inspiring anthology have won writing awards from The Word Guild, including, I’m thrilled to say, my two stories “Charlie” and “The Bulletin Board”
The 37 authors have performed dozens of author readings in bookstores, libraries, churches, book clubs and interest groups across Canada. This time five authors gathered at Crux Books (Wycliffe College and University of Toronto) to read portions of their stories: Armig Adourian, Marguerite Cummings, Bonnie Beldan-Thomson, Wendy Nelles and myself, Adele.

The library hall above Crux Books is a delight with stained glass windows, browsing benches in the bay windows, miles of books on the shelves, hot apple cider, and eager ears to hear. Thanks to Crux Books, at Wycliffe College and the University of Toronto.
