Local children’s author Marie Gage spent 10 years researching and writing her debut novel, A Ring of Promises.

She’ll be sharing her journey on Wednesday, April 28 during a Friends of the Haliburton County Public Library fundraiser.

The organization is presenting its first virtual Friends Café.

“Marie, a noted children’s author, will be discussing her first major novel A Ring of Promises,” the Friends said.

“This novel is an intriguing work of fiction inspired by the real-life events of the author’s paternal grandparents. It is a captivating story of love and adventure set in Canada, England and Scotland during the 1910s,” the Friends added.


The event is at 1 p.m. Register at http://bit.ly/Friends-Café-with-MarieGage.

There will be a 20 to 30-minute author presentation followed by a short question and answer session.

While a free event, donations in support of the library system will be gratefully accepted during the program.
