There is interesting news about food, beer and events happening at Bushwakker Brewpub in this newsletter. You can click on the picture above to read the newsletter and subscribe.
However, this is what I’d like you to read:
“Our Bushwakker Writers Corner was launched in November 2016. It is a space dedicated to celebrating the recent works of Saskatchewan published authors. What will begin as one shelf will hopefully grow into a large library showcasing our province’s wordsmiths. Pub patrons are encouraged to peruse a copy whilst enjoying a pint. The books in the corner library will be available for patrons interested in reading works by local authors and the books are to remain in the brewpub.
One of our featured authors is Annette Bower. Annette Bower grew up in Regina, Saskatchewan. She began her working career selling men’s underwear at the Army and Navy store, then went on to pump gas until she entered nurse’s training at the Regina Grey Nuns School of Nursing. She has worked in Regina, Ottawa, Halifax, Sioux Lookout, Vancouver, Winnipeg and Regina Beach. Annette enjoys writing short stories and novels. She gathers inspiration about women and men in love, searching for love, or lost without love, from her past and present. Her short stories are published in magazines and anthologies in Canada, United States and
in the UK. Woman of Substance, set in Regina and Lumsden, is her first novel. Her second novel, Moving On, is set in Regina Beach, Saskatchewan. Her third novel, Fearless Destiny, is set in Apex, Saskatchewan and is the winner of the Raven Award for Favourite Contemporary Novel. Her novels are published by Soul Mate Publishing, New York. She looks forward to reading to crowds or small groups.
Her featured book is titled Moving On. Anna Jenkins, a mysterious woman arrives in the resort town of Regina Beach, Saskatchewan as the heir to a cottage, even though there isn’t an obvious family connection. The residents of the town know everyone’s business and they are very keen on discovering Anna’s secrets. Anna meets Nick Donnelly with a secret of his own. As a soldier, the injuries he sustained in an IED explosion are greater than most people realize. During his rehabilitation, Nick and Anna become friends. Nick begins to dream of a life on the land with a family of his own. When Anna discovers that Nick plans to return to active duty, she puts the brakes on loving a man who might die because of his career. Nick must convince Anna they have a future to live for.”
The poster will be on the wall until the next featured author’s turn. Grant Frew hopes that many more Saskatchewan authors books will line the walls. Woman of Substance, Moving On and Fearless Destiny are there for patrons to peruse.
