READING EVENTS: In 2015, a special reading event including selections from Grandmothers’ Necklace and from other works by Heather Campbell, Daniel Elford and Patricia Anne Elford occurred in Janna’s Café in Pembroke. Other reading events are in the works for Pembroke, Arnprior, and other locations in 2016. If you wish to request a reading event for your business or organization, please email [email protected].
Sub-Saharan Africa had an estimated 13 million children orphaned by AIDS in 2006; this number is expected to reach 18-20 million in 2010. Amidst the overwhelming needs, grandmothers have stepped up to take on the care of children left destitute and alone. With hardly any resources, the grandmothers of Africa are at the heart of the community response to the AIDS pandemic. In some countries in Sub-Saharan Africa, between 40% and 60% of orphans live in grandparent-headed households; the vast majority of them are cared for by grandmothers.
Why a BOOK? Because, unlike the rest of the Petawawa Grannies, I
don’t knit, sew, crochet or make patchwork quilts. I don’t
golf or do crafts, except as a teaching device or with my grandchildren.
I do write and I do edit…that’s what I have to give. The call
for submissions went out. Wonderful, wonderful material came in. I was,
and am, very grateful for its quality. It’s one thing to have people
buy something for a “good cause”. It is a great bonus to know
that this something is really worth the price, and more.
