Authors For Indies

Mill Street Books welcomes Rick Revelle to roam about the store on Authors for Indies Day – Saturday, April 29, 2017.  This annual event is held at independent bookstores (indies) all across Canada. Canadian authors volunteer as guest booksellers to raise awareness of how important indies are to our communities, our reading lives, and our cultural well-being.

Rick has written The Algonquin Quest Series –  I Am Algonquin (2013), Algonquin Spring (2015) and Algonquin Sunset (June 2017).  These YA books centre on an Algonquin family unit that survives the harsh realities of life in the 1300’s in what is now known as Eastern Ontario and surrounding area.  You are introduced to their culture, hunting and survival techniques, plus the unique warfare that is indicative of the era. Native languages of that time are sprinkled throughout the stories.

Come to meet Rick on Saturday April 29th from 2 – 4pm. While chatting you will be able to enjoy a sample from Hummingbird Chocolate. For further information, please contact Mill Street Books at 613-256-9090.
