Cariboo author Donna Milner is hosting a coffee house style event this Thursday evening at the Tourism Discovery Centre for the launch of her latest book A Place Called Sorry.

The event takes place Thursday, Oct. 1 starting at 7 p.m.

“We are going to have an open mic where people can sing, read some poetry or prose, and join in,”  says Milner.

She will share the limelight with her son, Aaron Cully Drake, who will read from his literary debut,  Do You Think This is Strange?

The story follows the journey of Freddy, an autistic teenager.

Milner describes her new book as a family story that intersects two eras, drawn from a grandfather’s journal and his grandchild’s experience during the 1930s.
