For most women with an interest in the written word, the normal thing to do is form a book club and get together once a month or so over wine to compare notes about some piece of literature—often with lots of laughter and sometimes tears.
Clearly, that wasn’t enough for some of the passionate, diverse, professional members of the University Women’s Club of Vancouver. Forming the ‘Monday Writers Group,’ these mostly first-time writers quickly discovered that not only could they write, they could write well.
What began innocently as a series of writing exercises is now a book. Focusing on the themes of childhood, family, life experiences and misadventures, the Hycroft women’s personal short stories will not only delight and entertain readers, but inform them about some of the formative experiences in the lives of these inspiring women as seen through their eyes. ~ Gordon Clark, Editorial Pages Editor, The Vancouver Sun & The Province
