Peregrin launches anthology

Peregrin Publishing is a group of award winning writers and illustrators

Escaping from and escaping to is a complicated process.

It is hardly ever all good, it is almost always difficult, and it can bring unexpected results as well as those that were expected.

Campbell River-based Peregrin Publishing is a group of award winning writers and illustrators who, between them, have 40 years of experience in the industry. The group was formed to give local writers a venue for their work. Tomorrow at the Maritime Heritage Centre from 1:30-4 p.m., Peregrin launches Escape, an Anthology from North Vancouver Island and the Discovery Islands.

This book explores the theme in many of its permutations and disguises through short stories, graphic stories and poetry. And while the setting of the works is not always local, the viewpoint is that of a North Islander. Come and hear local contributors give presentations that include readings, graphic depictions of the publishing process, and humorous anecdotes about the writing process. Prizes, snacks, music, and book signings are all part of the package. In conjunction with the launch, an art show featuring Peregrin contributors will hang at the Tidemark Theatre from Nov. 7-27. Join the book launch at the Maritime Heritage Centre on Nov. 10, then journey to the Tidemark and spend time among the photographs and paintings by this group.
