Last week I travelled to North Bay for the first leg of my three week book launch at five Ontario Quebec Conference Annual Meetings of the United Church of Canada. Manitou Conference which covers the “near north” and east of Ontario was a wonderful way to begin. I shared the bookroom with Jackie Childerhose manager of the Five Oakes Book Store. I sold lots of my latest book, Dipping Your Toes in Planning Small Group Devotionals as well as a number of my novel, Fireweed. I renewed old friendships and met lots of new people. What a wonderful way to begin this book tour. The picture was taken by Eunice Laporte, the designated photographer for the conference.
