Literary invasion on Island


Posted 3 days ago

10-12 — the Kagawong Park Centre will be transformed into a gigantic
bookstore with more than 70 writers represented in a diverse showcase
of Northern Ontario literary talent.

Book lovers will have an opportunity to meet publishers and to
hear poets, novelists, short story writers and essayists share readings
from their works.

Sudbury-based Your Scrivener Press will be participating in the unique event sponsored by the Manitoulin Writers’ Circle.

Publications by Manitoulin/ North Shore poet Charlie Smith and
by former Expositor editor Diane Sims will be available for purchase.
In addition, internationally renowned writer and broadcaster Bruce
Meyer will launch his latest collection of poetry entitled Mesopotamia.

Other Your Scrivener authors include Colin Hayward, Roger Nash,
Sean Costello, Richard DeMeulles, Peter McEwen, George Case and Monique

Mystery writer Linda Kennedy, of Sudbury, is sure to be a big
hit with her parrot companion at the book fair. Kennedy has penned a
series featuring our feathered friends including Bird Watching, Love
Birds and Birds of a Feather.

Karen Trenouth, also of Sudbury, will present her intriguing
take on the Jack the Ripper tales in Epiphany of the Whitechapel
. Visitors can also pick up Mamma Mia! Good Italian Girls Talk
Back, by Rosanna Battigelli of the Sudbury Writers’ Guild.

Readers will identify with many of the antics and foibles of family life in Blair Sterling’s collection of stories.

The Blind River author’s memoirs are called Spittin’, Scratchin’
and Adjustin’ and Other Stories of Family Fun. Espanola author George
Bois also joins the lineup. Robert and Valerie Nielsen of Stoney Creek
will travel to Manitoulin to share works published by Potlatch

in World War Two, One Man’s War and a selection of Potlatch humour.

Amberdias Publishing of Timmins. He will be marketing The Converging
and Mark of the Demon. Parry Sound’s Julie Boucher will bring her
mystery Driftwood’s Secret and a children’s story entitled Small Fry on
the Magnetawan. And Manhattan’s Bonnie Kogos will offer a sneak preview
of her upcoming book about Manitoulin and Manhattan.

Perhaps the prize for longest distance travelled to
reach the Northern Book Fair should go to Gail Anderson-Dargatz. She
has driven to Manitoulin with her family from Sorrento, B. C.

Rhinestone Button published in 2002, A Recipe For Bees, which was a

I met the author, Karen Trenouth, through a InterNet website by pure inadvertance and, her articles, or blogs, which were condensed extracts of her two books, waked my curiosity.  After a few animated and interesting conversations, my enthousiasm grew hungry for her two books.  I must assure you that I am not the kind of man to believe all things on the spot, I am not naïve!  I just was convinced to read them because of the way she was pointing to certain aspects of the Ripper’s case.  And, speaking like a gentleman, I must say it is always hard to refuse favoring a lady that allies good sense and charm.
I read quite a couple dozens of books on that interesting case that happened on the end of the 19th century decors of Whitechapel, London and about that peculiar and elusive criminal who became to be known as Jack the Ripper or Ray-Jack, by allusion at the precision and speed in which he made his cuts on victims.  He was also said to have the know-how of a surgeon, showing there perhaps some medical knowledge.
I had at that moment my own made opinion on the true identity of the original killer but, on first survey of "Epiphany", I Have been projected into a fantastic chase for liable clues, I had a very educative glance at early police methods of inquiries, visioned a well preserved collection of photos of crime scenes enriched with schematics and intricate pointers.  In brief, I was totally plunged in a very detailed manner and in a totally renewed aspect of the murderer’s troubled psyche.
"Epiphany of the Whitechapel Murders" is not only interesting and informative, that would be much too modest; it is an intended travel through time, in a very agitated period of the 19th century England where Capitalism was freshly born and fortunes were won and lost often in a very chaotic way.  Karen really lived these events by going through all possible means to get her basic material and even visited all places where the actors of the drama had their names cited.  For such a young lady, it is a champion performance to have succeeded in finding all the necessary documents.
I personally deeply recommend both her books.  The first traces all the scenery and relive the lives of the participants.  The second, "Jack the Ripper, the Satanic Team", brings light on a new mystical aspect of new found truths.  Even if you opinion differs from her own, Karen’s researchs were meticulously done and, all the clues and evidences brought to your attention are genuine and even supported by the autorities that were concerned.
