Artist Takeover in Edmonton

Natasha Deen, author of several books including a new YA one, True Grime, decided to put on an artist takeover at the Whitemud Crossing Library. After several weeks of coordinating with the library, sponsors, and a group of us writers/artists, her vision came to life.

 Through PA announcements and us physically going to round people up, we got a solid audience of all ages and backgrounds. I’m sure it didn’t hurt that Natasha had snagged oodles of prizes from Chapters-Indigo,  Metro Continuing Education, the Writer’s Guild of Alberta, and more. And of course, all the participants donated at least one book or piece of art!

Natasha - like the audience - is captivated as Joan Marie Galat explores the mysteries of astronomy through science and myth.
