Author Chris Czajkowski will launching her latest book And the River Still Sings published by Caitlin Press at the Williams Lake Library on Wednesday, Oct. 29 starting at 6:30 p.m.

Born and raised in England, Czajkowski studied farming in Uganda as a young adult, then hitchhiked around the world, cultivating mountain skills and learning to appreciate the joy in solitude.
In 1979 she built a cabin deep in the woods of the West Chilcotin.
And The River Still Sings explores the experiences that led Chris to a solitary lifestyle and details her shift to a life closer to civilization. Although Chris’s “retirement home” has easier access to a road and neighbours, she still lives beyond the end of the power line.
