Writers, readers and surprise family members from distant cities came out to cheer on the CMC at their first meet and greet. Words were read, books found new homes and a good time was had by all. With a big thank-you to the wonderfully supportive Calgary writing community and Owl’s Nest Books.
We hope you can join us at Owl’s Nest Books on Saturday, June 21, 2014 from 1–4 pm for a Meet ‘n’ Greet with your favourite Crabby Apples. Find out who we are and what the Crabapple Mews Collective is all about. Nibble some nibblies, imbibe a little wine, browse and maybe even buy a couple of books (Owl’s Nest loves that!).
Hope to see you there!
A Root Beer Season was recently reviewed by Freefall Magazine. Here’s an excerpt:
Sparkling dialogue written in the authentic voice of a fifteen-year old narrator Sonja Pfeiffer is what carries this novel set in Edmonton in the summer of 1967. Sonja is a typical teenager of any year, hormones budding, but still under control, desirous of being independent of scrutiny by her parents, who in her case, were born in war-torn Germany, clinging to a strict, unforgiving religion, Gemeine Alles Gottes (GAG) that restricts almost every enjoyment.
The Writing Menopause Anthology wants to make “women of a certain age” visible in all their grey-haired glory. Looking for short fiction, creative non-fiction, flash fiction and poetry. Writers can be living through it, writing through or about it, or witnessing it. The editors invite submissions to “be funny, be furious, be the eye of the storm. Be courageous and outrageous.” No how-tos or medical/quasi-medical advice. Length: 2500 words max. and up to three poems.
Deadline: June 30, 2014
Email submissions as Word attachments to: email@example.com
A Root Beer Season needs an Edmonton launch and with that in mind, the Crabapples have arranged to do just that. Plan to drop in on May 4th, 2014 at Audreys Books, 10702 Jasper Avenue, at 2 PM for a short reading, some snacks and of course, some root beer. And, of course, to pick up a copy of A Root Beer Season. Hope to see you there!
