Doherty-featBy Jake Doherty

If you think that's strange, given how much I talk, you're right. I've been thinking about my voice in the past few days as I prepare for the launch of my new novel, Bearwalker Alibi, Thursday evening at the Ginger Press in Owen Sound.

But if you have stuttered as long and often as I did when I was much younger, then your voice can never be taken for granted. Not knowing what would come out of your mouth was both embarrassing and draining. My working and easily accessible vocabulary had became narrower and narrower.

lookup-regLook up Theatre presents an afternoon of entertainment when it brings The Roxy Theatre alive with a performance of Insect Circus, followed by the documentary film Every Story has a Twist about the life and times of Look Up's artistic director Angola Murdoch.
The Insect Circus is a creepy-crawly audience delight starring bugs, bees, spiders and more. Be amazed as you watch a caterpillar emerge from its suspended cocoon and flies swarm the spectators, in a most pleasant way.

On Sunday August 24 at 2pm, join us at the TOM for our last talk in this series with guest speakers Joan and Steve Irvine.

Paisley-regOur River and Blues Festival in June pairs live Blues music with Paisley's Voyageur Canoe weekend. This gives the surrounding community an opportunity to watch, learn about, and even paddle on of these giant canoes. Truly Canadian Icons born out of the fur trading era! Our River and Blues Festival 2014 featured great live music from The MacKenzie Blues Band, Morgan Davis, Cheryl Lescom, Tim Woodcock, The Riverside Blues Band, and more!
