There was a good turn-out — more chairs had to be found, and several people were left standing while Brenda read. It's a rare treat to hear a live reading by an accomplished performer! And yes, there was singing, too. And laughter... And food. And best of all, a great story.
Brenda Baker is also the author of The Maleness of God, an award-winning collection of short stories published by Coteau Press. An early version of Camp Outlook was awarded a John V Hicks Manuscript Award from the Saskatchewan Writers Guild in 2005.
(Note: Brenda offers coaching to help writers read their work more effectively in public. Seriously. I've taken workshops with her — she is excellent!)
Congrats — and thanks for an entertaining evening, Brenda!
