Another newspaper article on Sixty-Five Years Till Now!

Summer, A Time for Gardens and Poetry

File 152We held our first book signing and poetry reading last weekend in Naesgaard's Garden Gallery, a newly developed area filled with flowers and shrubs. Alexis Roumanis and wife Dayna surprised his mother, Victoria, with a reception to launch her new book of 151 poems.

Alexis, an accomplished young man, who wrestled both locally and at Simon Fraser University now ownes a publishing business, Engage Books. On the sly he gathered his mother's work and surprised her with the book titled Sixty-Five Years Till Now.

It's available in good bookstores and at Naesgaard's. Victoria Roumanis who writes under her maiden name of Hazlehurst has shared her writing and photographs with the local community since her arrival from England in 1974. On Sunday morning I enjoyed listening to CBC Radio's interview with Alexis and Victoria.
