“Seeds in the Wind” Book Launch Party

The Okanagan’s newest book publisher, Artistic Warrior is launching the company’s first title Seeds in the Wind.  To introduce the book to as many people as possible the launch party is Friday, November 18, 7 pm to 9 pm at the Royal Anne Hotel on Bernard Ave. in Kelowna. There will be plenty of appies and wine from Vibrant Vines and beer and cider from Tree Brewing. Your ticket includes three healthy (5 oz) tastings from the selection of fabulous Kelowna beverages.

Author Teresa Johnston (Yang May) tells her story of being part of an immigrant family in the 1970’s and her experiences with racism.  Seeds in the Wind recounts Teresa’s experience of overcoming the difficulties she faced as a child and the inspiring teaching career she devoted herself to, teaching children to accept the differences in others.  The book is geared toward children, but is also a great read for adults.

Teresa Johnston, Author and Founder of The Fairy Godmothers

 

In addition to being an author, Teresa is a co-founder of My Fairy Godmothers organization. Its mission is to help children with broken hearts; children who’ve suffered the loss of their parent(s) through death, divorce or other tragedy or who are battling their own chronic disease. Teresa and her fellow Fairy Godmothers fulfill a small wish for these children to help put a smile back on their faces.

To support My Fairy Godmothers, the book launch is also a fundraiser with a great line-up of silent auction items, a draw for a brilliant weekend at Sparkling Hill and book sales.

Tickets to the launch are on sale now at the Royal Anne Hotel, Booster Juice on KLO in Kelowna and online at www.artisticwarrior.com

On a side note, aspiring Okanagan authors with a great story to tell – Artistic Warrior is looking for another author for their upcoming publishing line-up.  A rep from the company will be on hand at the launch.
