Gravenhurst Library Welcomes ‘Voices of Muskoka Women’
Local Group will Debut their First Anthology

Gravenhurst, ON – The Gravenhurst Public Library is pleased to welcome the Voices of Muskoka Women to the Library and invite members of the public to join them on Monday January 13 at 12pm, as they read from their debut anthology.

“Gravenhurst Public Library was thrilled to join with Legacy Writing Partners, beginning in 2018. Together we created ‘Lit for Lunch’, a series that brings authors and the public together for readings and discussion about books, writing and publishing.  Together, we have been able to host three successful ‘Lit for Lunch’ sessions. We are excited to continue these readings in the New Year, starting with a local writing group, Voices of Muskoka Women, who will be reading from their first anthology,” said Laura Lambert, collections and digital literacy librarian.

This group of Muskoka women have been gathering since 2015. Through guided storytelling, writing workshops, singing, games and deep conversation, a diverse body of writings has emerged.  “This anthology is a remarkable example of the creativity that can be found within our rural communities, expressed by many women who never
before realized how much they have to offer,” said Christine Cowley, Legacy Writing Partners.

Registration for the readings is not required, the event will be held in the Meeting Room at the Gravenhurst Public Library, located at 180 Sharpe St. W. in Gravenhurst. Everyone is welcome!
