Category: Open Adult ProgramsShelley Banks and Annette Bower Author Reading

Close

September 12, 2017

Exile on a Grid Road and Fearless Destiny
Shelley Banks takes inspiration from the natural world and the mysteries of life and love. An avid photographer, her writing is infused with native birds and flowers, and the shadows and light within and around us. She calls herself an itinerant Canada, and at age eight, she moved with her parents to the West Indies, where she grew up. After returning home, she studied in Ontario, worked in Vancouver, Montreal and Ottawa, and is now based in Regina. Shelley holds an MFA in Creative Writing and an MA in Journalism, and has worked as a reporter, editor, and freelance writer, as well as in some corporate roles she’d rather not discuss… Her poetry and short stories have been published in leading Canadian literary magazines including CV2, Room, Grain, and The Antigonish Review. Her poetry collection, Exile on a Grid Road was published by Thistledown Press – with her photography featured on the cover.

Annette Bower believes home is where her stories begin. She travels extensively, but always returns to Regina. Her experiences as a nurse, administrator, town councillor, teachers’ assistant, and student inform her stories and reflect the experiences of many readers. She watches people wherever she goes. The way you walk, turn your head, or the T-shirt you wear may end up in one of her stories. Her short stories are published in Cup of Comfort for Mothers and Sons, Cup of Comfort for Breast Cancer Survivors, Cup of Comfort for Couples, and many other anthologies and magazines. She has published three novels set in Saskatchewan because she knows we love deeply. She will be reading from her newest novel, Fearless Destiny which is a finalist in the RONE (Reward of Novel Excellence).

Meet Regina authors Shelley and Annette and enjoy readings from their published works. Books for sale.

Both Rex and Leavey serve successfully together on over 100 missions but then the unthinkable happens. When Leavey drives over a roadside bomb with Rex in the car, they have no other option than to fight for their lives together.
