The South Shuswap Branch of the Okanagan Regional Library is pleased to present a free fiction writing workshop geared for older teens, college or university students, and other interested adults.
Published author Gail Anderson-Dargatz will lead a writers in a discussion on how to turn fact into fiction. Fiction writers find inspiration for their writing in both history and personal stories. However, fiction is not real life and real life often makes for dull or implausible fiction. In this informal workshop, Gail will help in finding ways to move those real-life stories into fiction, and to avoid common pitfalls and concerns like “What will Mom think?”
Gail has several books including The Cure for Death by Lightning and A Recipe for Bees which were both shortlisted for Canada’s prestigious Giller Prize and were international bestsellers. She currently teaches fiction in the Creative Writing MFA program at the University of British Columbia, and divides her time between Manitoulin Island and the Shuswap, the landscape found in so much of her writing.
The writing workshop is free, but registration is necessary. To register please call 250-675-4818 or email email@example.com.

Sorrento Friends of the Library group was formed in 2002 under the umbrella of the Salmon Arm Friends of the Library group. There are 12 volunteers that help out with the Book Sales in Salmon Arm. The Sorrento Friends of the Library is now call South Shuswap Friends of the Library.
The Book Sales are fundraisers for future purchases which include a special table to display a rock collection at the Sorrento Library. We have purchased 2 lounge chairs from the "Friends of the Library" fund which are situated in the magazine area. The group also provides funds for special library programmes. The amount of funds for Sorrento Library, gained from a Book Sale is calculated by the number of hours Sorrento volunteers work during that time.
Meetings are held 5 times a year on the third Monday of February, April, June, September and November
South Shuswap and Salmon Arm Friends of the Library will be holding their next meeting Monday, May 5/14 at 2:00 pm in the boardroom of the Piccadilly Mall.
