My Aunt Pat calls them Book Jams. When I was getting ready for the Waterfront Festival I was planning on creating some small chapbooks…then on the Friday before the festival the chapbook became a “Book in a Jar.” We are Sunshine in a Jar, after all. It makes sense that we should have books in a jar. We sold them for $10 and they were a big hit!
Another amazing four days at the Cobourg Waterfront Festival in the Rotary Arts & Crafts tents! My aunt Pat Skene and I joined forces selling our books to readers of all ages. Our booth had a stunning view of the Cobourg Harbour and the midway on the Pier. We met many talented artists and artisans. We saw many generous friends and family who bought our new books or stopped by for a visit.
On October 19th, 2014 at Victoria Hall in Cobourg, Jessica Outram and Sunshine in a Jar Press launched The Writing Spiral: Learning as a Writer. A big thanks to Chuck Willemsen for taking and sharing these photos!! I wish now that I had thought of doing a group shot with all the contributors.
Sunshine in a Jar Press has joined forces with Press Here to Start Publishing to rent a booth at The Cobourg Waterfront Festival, June 28-July 1, 2014. Our books will be available in Tent A in the Rotary Arts & Craft Show. We are the only booksellers participating! And, we are totally thrilled to be facing Lake Ontario and the Cobourg Harbour for the cool breezes and fantastic view!
