Saturday I attended the Book launch for both Lorna Foreman’s “When Life Becomes Real….and how come it happened so quickly?” and Abraham & Chloe Fox’s “Around the World in Song with Safta & Saba”.
A lot of people commented on never have been in Café Connectionz and what a neat space it is. It was perfect for the book launch.
Ms Foreman was contacted by a reader of her articles in 55 Plus magazine asking if she’s written a book which became the genesis of her collection. One of her favorites is of her writing about a fantasy of going off on a motorcycle adventure only to have area Writer Roger Sauvé knock on her door suggesting they go for a ride on his Kawasaki… through the Cabot trail! You’ll have to read the book to see how that went. Her book is available at Café Connectionz or you can email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Chloe & Abraham Fox have one big family. They have 10 grand-children which inspired them to create this book of children’s song from all over their world. “Around the World in Song with Safta & Saba includes a cd of 21 different songs in different languages including translations.
It’s illustrated by her grand-children as well. Her grand daughter Zara played violin on the cd. As a child Chloe remembered listening to a record of songs in different languages and was captivated deciding how amazing it would be for children to experience more languages and cultures.
Part of the proceeds from the sale of her book go to The Hagar Association in Israel which promotes peace & understanding. They have a school that teaches Arab & Israeli kids together.
Her book is also available via Café Connectionz or you can phone 613.525.0891 for more information.
