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 Uniqe post.)

Anne reads

Anne Saxton, an experienced reader of talking books for the CNIB, provided two excellent readings from OUT OF THE ROONS.

Emcee Ann Birch and reader, Anne Saxton, with author, Isobel Raven

OUT OF THE ROONS contains the words for three patriotic hymns of the Glorius Nue Wrld Reepublik uv Azhu and de Amerikas. A hymn-sing was definitely in order.

With passion, please.
Lydia Pedersen, accompanist

Conducted by Isobel Raven, author, the hymns were rendered with enthusiasm.

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