Invermere Library thanks local author

Dear Editor:

I had the opportunity to attend a 1940s evening at Pynelogs this past Friday. The event was held to honour our very own valley author Elinor Florence and the launch of her first novel called Birds Eye View, which takes place during this time period. The evening was a nostalgic walk down memory lane as guests stepped back in time to a bygone era. The attire and hairdos were very grand and detailed right down to the ink-drawn seamed stockings not to mention the family heirlooms on display.

On behalf of the Board of Trustees for the Invermere Library, I would like to extend a sincere thank you to all those involved in making this such a delightful evening: the dedicated library staff for being so enthusiastically involved in organizing the evening, the Friends of the Library for supplying the treats, CV Arts for providing the venue, and, of course, Elinor for the great story! We particularly wish to thank Elinor for choosing the library as a distributor of her novel. In return, the library receives a percentage of the proceeds from each book purchased. This is a wonderful opportunity to do some Christmas shopping while supporting several local initiatives shop local, support a local author, and contribute to your local library.

Once again, many thanks to all involved!

Brenda Danyluk
