On My Bookshelf, June 22, 2018

I recently attended the book launch for an Ottawa author, Brenda Chapman‘s 4th book in a series called A Stonechild and Rouleau Mystery.  It was an interesting experience — never attended a book launch before — and I thoroughly enjoyed it.  I had purchased the fourth book in the series for signing purposes and thought I would read it first, then see if I would buy the others.  I now own them all, have read two, and can’t wait to read the other 2.

Having taught elementary school for more than 25 years and been involved in many amazing technology and curriculum projects, I find I've developed a myriad of interests based on literature I've read and music I've heard. I've followed The Wright Three to Chicago, Ansel Adams to Colorado, The Kon Tiki Expedition to Easter Island, Simon & Garfunkel lyrics to New York City, Frank Lloyd Wright to Fallingwater, Pennsylvania, and have only just begun.
