Books and cupcakes – open house offers two of the best things out there

A number of local fiction authors, many of them members of the Langley Writers’ Guild, will gather for an open house and book sale on Friday, Feb. 7 in downtown Langley.

Hosted by Frosting Cupcakery, 20411 Fraser Hwy., the event will run from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m.

Cupcakes and other goodies will be provided.

Among the authors with her works for sale is Doris Riedweg, president of the Langley Writers’ Guild.

Two of her novels, Still Waters and Water in the Wilderness, are influenced by her long-time career as a registered nurse.

Riedweg, who recently completed her fourth novel, said that she hopes aspiring novelists will see the event as an opportunity to talk to the authors about writing fiction, and learn of the help available through membership in the Langley Writers’ Guild.

Bruce Kilby’s table will feature copies of his first book, The Legend of the Tooth Fairy, a fantasy for children, which he co-wrote with Ken Johnson and released last year.

Langley Times columnist Jim McGregor, and former Times reporter Natasha Jones, will have copies of their first collaboration, Surfacing, which they launched last June.

Trudy Davies, well known Surrey poet and author of children’s literature, will be present with her book Butterfly Dreams: Milo’s Adventure.

Other novelists in attendance include Cora Goodyear, Carolann Vestergaard, Eleanor Ryan and Loreena Lee.

The highlight will be a draw for a Valentine’s Day dinner for two. Visitors to the event are eligible to put their name in the draw for every book they purchase.
