Fans of Langley writers such as Doris Riedweg, Jim McGregor, Bruce Kilby, or Cora Goodyear might be anxious to stop in for an authorsâ€™ open house this week.
A number of local fiction authors, many of them members of the Langley Writersâ€™ Guild, will be hosting the open house and book sale at Frosting Cupcakery at 204th Street and Fraser Highway from 1 to 7 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 7.
Visitors will have a chance to visit with the authors, explained McGregor. But theyâ€™ll also have a chance â€“ with the purchase of every book â€“ to enter to win a Valentineâ€™s Day dinner for two.
Riedweg president of the Langley Writersâ€™ Guild, said two of her novels, Still Waters and Water in the Wilderness, are influenced by her long career as a nurse.
She has recently completed her fourth novel, and she hopes aspiring novelists will see the event as an opportunity to talk to herself and other authors about writing fiction, and learn of the help available through membership in the guild.
Among other novelists in attendance will be Carolann Vestergaard, Eleanor Ryan, and Loreena Lee.
Trudy Davies, a well known Surrey poet and author of childrenâ€™s literature, will attend with her book Butterfly Dreams: Miloâ€™s Adventure.
Retired City fire chief Jim McGregor and former reporter Natasha Jones, will have copies of their first collaboration, Surfacing, which they launched last June.
And Kilbyâ€™s table will feature copies of his first book, The Legend of the Tooth Fairy, a fantasy for children, which he co-wrote with Ken Johnson and released last year.
