When Garnet Rogers and Lynne Hanson met in Ottawa on CKCU's "Canadian Spaces" folk radio program, they talked about their experiences both as singer-songwriters... and as authors! On Saturday, December 10 at Southminster United Church, these two talented artists will be featured both in a book launch at 1:00 pm (admission free) and in a concert at 3:00 pm (tickets $25 at www.folkzone.ca).
"Night Drive: Travels with My Brother" is Garnet Rogers' new 735-page memoir about his experiences travelling and performing with his brother Stan Rogers for years trying to establish careers playing original music. Garnet tells the story in a spell-binding way that somehow manages to be fascinating, heartbreaking and hilarious all at the same time.
By popular demand, Lynne Hanson recently published "friday haiku", a book that showcases some of the poems and photos she has been posting online every Friday for several years.
