FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

London, Ontario, June 13, 2017                     

You may not have heard of a fur-bearing trout, but it’s coming to London, Ontario in time for Canada Day.

The story of the fur-bearing trout and how it hoaxed people in Scotland is just one of many personal, non-fiction pieces collected in The Fur-Bearing Trout … and Other True Tales of Canadian Life. The book is a timely celebration of Canada during our sesquicentennial year with contributions from 16 authors, current and former members of the London & Southwestern Ontario chapter of the Professional Writers Association of Canada (PWAC).

But these stories are not just about our corner of Southwestern Ontario. These true tales of Canadian life cover the breadth of the nation and will resonate with readers from coast to coast. Within this book, you will encounter a famous dead elephant, a national hero, possibly Canada’s worst ever hockey team, train travellers, an angry bear, beautiful sunsets and northern lights. All of them offer a slice of truth about what this country is about – even one about a fur-bearing trout.  

The book’s launch is on June 25, 2017, from 3-5 p.m. at Anderson Craft Ales (1030 Elias St., London, Ontario). Members of the public who want to celebrate with the local authors are welcome. The Fur-Bearing Trout … and Other True Tales of Canadian Life will be there, hot off the press, for $15 a copy.

Copies of the book will also be available at Attic Books, Chapters/Indigo and other bookstores and venues. Readings will be scheduled from now through December.

PWAC London gratefully acknowledges the London Arts Council for their generous grant towards printing costs for this book.
