Going to Beautiful Book Launch

Presented by Shelf Life Books

Virtual Presentation via Zoom

Shelf Life Books brings together Stonehouse Publishing’s 2022 authors, Anthony Bidulka, S. Portico Bowman, Joanne Jackson and Kelly Kaur. Each author’s work has a distinctive voice, narrative, and style but shares intention to move their characters through the tumult that makes not only a good story, but a powerful way to manage real life. From Singapore, France, the Canadian prairie and beyond, we invite you to enjoy tales of personal awakening, mystery, coming of age and determination. 

Hosted by Lisa Murphy-Lamb, director of Loft 112, a literary creative space in Calgary’s East Village.
