I have been asked to write a chapter for a book celebrating the centenary of the First World War. I have been reading letters from the front and from the home front. It is moving and disturbing. We are so fortunate to live in a time of relative peace in Canada.
The Raven #2 Unveiling got great coverage in the Banff Crag and Canyon. The unveiling of Raven #2, the public art installation on the back of Banff town Hall was an intimate fun, local event followed by a reception at the Whyte Museum of the Canadian Rockies. Congratulations, Lynne!

I attended the CNFC conference at the Banff Centre Friday night and Saturday. It was an excellent opportunity to meet other writers from across the country and to share information about research, writing and marketing our work.
I am currently working with Mary-Beth Laviolette on an assessment of the Alberta Foundation for the Arts collection. I am focusing on photography and historic art. It is a fascinating project. You can view the collection through https://hermis.alberta.ca/afa/
Today at noon I will be unveiling the new public art installation on the back of Banff’s town hall by Artist Lynne Huras.
