GUILDFORD — Four authors are part of “Remembering the Past in Poetry and Prose,” the next Authors Among Us event at Guildford library.
The Surrey Libraries-hosted series continues on Wednesday, Nov. 4, starting at 7 p.m.
The event is a chance to “meet authors who explore personal memories and historical events through their writing.”
The panel of authors will include Heidi Greco, Olive Caldwell Lee, Rose Seiler Scott and Kevin Spenst.
Greco, author of the award-winning novella “Shrinking Violets, Rattlesnake Plantain” and a number of anthologized poems, is a longtime resident of Surrey.
Lee, author of “Living out the Dream,” was raised on a farm in Fallowfield, close to the Ontario homesteads of the Caldwells and Argues, the families whose lives are described in the book. The story describes the life and times of two Irish families who decided to emigrate to Canada in the 1820s.
Scott is the Surrey-based author of “Threaten to Undo Us,” based on the real-life story of a family torn apart by two powerful regimes during and after World War Two.
A book called “Jabbering with Bing” was written by Spenst, who has performed a one-man show at the Vancouver Fringe Festival and more than a hundred readings of his poetry across Canada. His work has won the Lush Triumphant Award for Poetry.
