Book Panel at the VPL Celebrates Mother's Day

Writers and mothers gathered at the Vancouver Public Library on Wednesday, May 5 at 7:30 pm to hear readings and a panel discussion featuring Double Lives contributors Catherine Owen and Luanne Armstrong. Also featured were contributors to Between Interruptions: Thirty Women Tell the Truth About Motherhood, Dorothy Woodend and Rachel Rose (whose work also appeared in Double Lives), and their accomplished editor, Cori Howard.

The evening also included a presentation to the winner of this year's Creativity and Motherhood contest. Lucie Joseph describes herself as someone currently "pursuing two new passions--motherhood and writing." She draws her inspiration from "her past and from the adventures that she has with her 17-month old son, Jeffrey."

We would like to congratulate Lucie for her winning story and thank everyone who entered the contest. To read the winning story, click here.
