Welcome to the White Mountain Publications Newsletter August 3, 2014
Quietly we opened our doors to the store July 31st, and are looking forward to our Grand Opening Weekend August 8, 9, and 10th, 2014. Festivities start about 2 pm Friday, with the ribbon-cutting at 4:00 pm on Friday. So far we have confirmed that Diane Armstrong will be here to sign Mud, Muskeg & Mosquitoes on Friday afternoon and Saturday morning. As further authors are confirmed we will add them here.
Our summer store hours are: Monday through Saturday 10 am to 6 pm and Sunday from noon to 5 pm. We will re-evaluate the traffic in September and decide on winter hours at that point.
In a fit of optomism I had announced that the Northern Ontario Poetry Competition's Launch would be held here at the store. Now that we have everything arranged, we know that there is no room in the store for the Launch. We have arranged with a neighbour here in Cobalt- Lindsay Inglis of Studio Lux at 7 Prospect Avenue, Cobalt --to have the Readings there, and then we can adjourn to the store afterwards. 7 Prospect Avenue is a few feet away, and is one of the fabulously restored Cobalt buildings, complete with the old Bank of Ottawa vault. Must be seen to be believed. The NOPC Launch is being held the Saturday after Labour Day--September 6, from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm. The Selections will be posted after the Grand Opening, and the mailed invites soon. Hope to see everyone there.
A reminder that the pre-publication discount is in effect for the 2015 edition of the Canadian Writers' Contest Calendar. We are starting to prepare the annual letters for mailing in early September.
Wish us luck.
