Ginger Press Doy
The 34th Annual Authors’ Open House will take place at The Ginger Press in downtown Owen Sound this Saturday December 7 from 11:00-2:00. Over a dozen local authors will be available to talk about their recent books and the publishing process, as well as sign copies. In addition, original artwork from some of the books will be on display.

Attending authors will include Brian Barrie (The L.I.E.); Gail Gallant (The Changeling: A Memoir); Stephen Hogbin (Intersections); Bonita Johnson de Matteis (Black Eyed Peas and Races: The Emancipation Picnic); Katharine Lochnan, Louise Moore and Judith Thomson (Footprints in Time); Barry More (A Thing of Beauty: The Story of Morland Place); Rob Rolfe and Larry Jensen (Late Nights on Irish Mountain book and CD); Richard-Yves Sitoski (Brownfields); Richard Thomas (Owen Sound: From the Great War to the Depression 1912-1929); and Eric Zweig (Stanley Cup: The Complete History).

The latest volume by Richard Thomas in his ongoing history of Owen Sound will be launched during the Open House. Owen Sound: From the Great War to the Depression 1912 – 1929 contains original research and photographs, and documents the significant changes during and after the Great War, the excitement of Owen Sound officially becoming a city, and the boom years of the roaring 1920s.

“We have been privileged to showcase the books of hundreds of local authors during the past three decades of hosting this event,” says Ginger Press owner Maryann Thomas. “The diversity of local literary talent continues to amaze me.” This year, the books include new children’s titles, art books, poetry, fiction and history.

There is no charge to attend the Ginger Press Annual Authors’ Open House and everyone is welcome. Autographed copies of all books can be reserved at 376-4233.
