Thank you to EVERYONE who braved the freezing cold and treacherous roads to make it down to Art Fuse last night.
The brave few who gathered were rewarded handsomely by stellar readings from authors Anne Hamre and Taras Kaznasty, a moving exposition on her art and the artistic process by Lori Anne Youngman, and an outstanding acoustic blend of guitar, penny-whistle and harmonica by musician Jim McCloskey. It was a magical evening as word, image and sound became experience.
Next week Art Fuse welcomes Warren Hathaway, author of Pursuit of a Dream, artist Lori Youngman, who’ll be unveiling a new exhibit, as well as special guests. I was lucky enough to host Warren’s book launch for Pursuit of a Dream at the Alberta Aviation Museum and I can personally attest that Warren is an electrifying speaker!
Pursuit of a Dream is one of those rare books that transcends genre and speaks to EVERYONE. Here’s a short review I wrote about it:
“PURSUIT OF A DREAM by Warren Hathaway is an explosive, compelling, often humorous, in-your-face account of the exploits of Vera Dowling. This new book recounts Dowling’s most memorable experiences, mishaps and adventures in her illustrious aviation career. Readers will find themselves on the edge of their seats as they join Dowling in the cockpit of many types of aircraft and face certain death time and time again. Hathaway, through decades of personal correspondence with Dowling, has written an entertaining and exceptional account of one of Canada’s most celebrated aviation icons. PURSUIT OF A DREAM is a triumph—of perseverance, faith, and the human spirit to adapt and overcome any obstacle. This new book by Warren Hathaway will empower readers to follow their own dreams; it will leave them cheering.”—Wolfgang Carstens
