Dear Readers and Writers,
Did you know that October 11th is World Hospice and Palliative Care Day?
The information came to me recently via email from Colleen Rush, Education Coordinator with the Chilliwack Hospice Society. Inspired by the book, The End of Your Life Book Club, Colleen created an event to raise awareness about World Hospice & Palliative Care Day. Her idea? The Book Lovers’ Bucket List Event, to be held at the Chilliwack Library on Oct. 11, from 10 a.m. until noon.
Participants at this event will discuss the joy of reading, talk about books that have inspired them or books that are on their “To Read Bucket Lists,” and listen to readings from local authors. The Chilliwack Hospice Society is organizing this event in partnership with the Chilliwack Branch of the Fraser Regional Library & The Bookman Book Store.
A scathingly brilliant idea, certainly worth sharing. Stunning poster, too. Well done, Colleen!
Are there any ‘bookish’ events in your community to mark this day? Do you have a “To Read” section on your Bucket List? If so, please share.

My best to you,
