Last Thursday, Western Sky Books hosted a reading featuring local, Tri-Cities writers, at the Port Coquitlam Farmers Market. The Market theme was “For the Love of Books.” Along with our usual bookselling stall at the market and alongside the Terry Fox Mobile Library team, writers read in two groups at the main stage. First up, Farida Somjee and Bev Gyori, reading excerpts of their fiction work. A while later, Jennifer Pownall, Pandora Ballard, and Nikki Hillman read their poetry and short fiction. Many thanks to both the Market and TriCity Wordsmiths for their help in creating a successful event!
