Chilliwack author to read at The Book Man
Another award-winning author will be gracing The Book Man's much-loved, dog-eared stacks.
Local author Annie Daylon will be reading from her new book, Passages: A Collection of Short Stories, on Saturday, July 14 at 2 p.m.
The fictional tales include a man's journey from middle-class to homeless; a young women's regrets of the day; the passage of life; and more – all with a Canadian backdrop.
Daylon, a retired teacher, is channeling her love of reading and her skills as an educator in this second career as an author.
Her venture into short fiction began as a break from the marathon of writing her first novel, Maggie of the Marshes, which was released on Kindle in 2010.
Daylon's stories, which range from heartwarming to horrifying, have appeared in literary magazines across North America.
Daylon was born in Newfoundland, but now resides in Chilliwack and is a member of the Chilliwack Writers' Group.
After attending Mount Allison University in New Brunswick, the University of Manitoba, and and the University of British Columbia where she earned a masters' degree in education, Daylon spent 30 years teaching before venturing into authorhood.

Copies of Passages can be purchased after the reading for $10.
