PWAC Sask at Word on the Street Saskatoon

On Saturday, Sept. 21, members from the Professional Writers Association of Canada Saskatchewan Chapter spent the day manning a booth at Word on the Street Saskatoon! The day was sunny, the speakers were fantastic, and we talked to a lot of people who were interested in the member books we had on display.

Our table was stocked with member books for sale.
Marie Powell had her Word Families children's book series for sale, Malene Jorgensen brought copies from her "how to" collection of books, Anne Laurko had a copy of Dollybird on display, and Ashleigh Mattern had copies of Herstory: The Canadian Women's Calendar available. PWAC member Jesse Green helped watch the booth.

Member Anne Lazurko spoke at the event about her book Dollybird.
We each made some sales, brainstormed ideas and events for the chapter, and made plans to attend the event again next year. As we did last year, we split the booth with our friends in words, the Editors Association of Canada Saskatchewan Chapter, and we hope to do so again in 2015.

It was a perfect fall day, with lots of foot traffic.
