“This spectacular picture book written in subtly linked, beautifully composed four-line stanzas, evokes winds around the world, including those in the Canadian west, off the coast of Central America, Capetown, and the Middle East.  The beautiful pictures by Toronto-based watercolour artist Gillian Newland are muscular, organic, powerful evocations of the power of those winds.” Red Deer Press

Along with a number of our other talented members, Barbara is presenting at the Vancouver Writers Fest on Tuesday, October 20  and at a sold-out event with Melanie Watt and JonArno Lawson Wednesday October 21.

Be sure to check the CWILL website for information about booking Barbara for school and library presentations.
