OUT OF THE ROONS launched on Saturday, November 9 at Royal York Road United church in the Ennals Room.

Emceed by noted Toronto English teacher, Ann Birch, the proceedings were lively and somewhat unusual. (I won’t say unique. See post.)

Anne Saxton, an experienced reader of talking books for the CNIB, provided two excellent readings from OUT OF THE ROONS. Ann Birch, noted teacher and author emceed.

Anne reads

Since OUT OF THE ROONS contains the words for three patriotic hymns of the Glorius Nue Wrld Reepublik uv Azhu and de Amerikas, and considering the venue and the composition of the audience, a hymn-sing was definitely in order.

Conducted by Isobel Raven, author, and accompanied by Lydia Pedersen, never retired musician, the hymns were rendered with the enthusiasm required as the appropriate homage from Loyel Sitizens.

The food and the service met the standard set by the other elements and more.
