Two local artists will be reading from their recent works on Saturday September 28th from 2:00 p.m. until 4:00 p.m. at All About Books Café in Downtown Gananoque (map) as part of this year’s Culture Days event.
The Culture Days initiative is being celebrated at the national level, and sponsored locally by the FAB Arts group, to encourage Canadians to participate in and appreciate all forms of culture and the arts and develop a network of cultural connections.
One of the featured artists at the Gananoque event will be George Caron, who will read selections from “Mouse on a String” which is based on the former Prison for Women in Kingston and his involvement there.
Caron has experience working with male and female parolees and inmates and so is able to have great insight into and an understanding of troubled human beings and the complex issues they face. The life of an inmate at ‘P4W’ is portrayed in the novel from the day she enters the prison to the day that she is released into the community.
Another featured artist will be Perry Prete, who will read from “All Good Things”, a murder mystery that is based on his experiences in emergency medical services.
Prete uses his 30 years of experience as a paramedic and working with the injured and sick to help create the character of the crime investigator, Ethan Tennant. The reading is sure to be especially captivating with themes that include illicit weapons, drugs, death threats, and illicit relationships.
The Frontenac Arch Biosphere region is promoted by the FAB Arts as a destination full of talented artists whose works are inspired by the splendid landscape in the area.
