Vankleek Hill artist Susan Jepchott was hard at it last week signing copies of her just-released book called, “The Tangerine Cat.” Jephcott is numbering and signing her first order of books and delivered a few copies to The Review last week. Those copies are now for sale, but Jephcott, who compiled a series of stories she has been writing for several decades, pre-sold almost 100 copies of her book before printing. The book also contains images of her own paintings, of course, which she has matched up with selected stories. The stories are set mostly in Vankleek Hill and some of them require expanding your imagination to include animals that talk and live their own lives alongside humans. The book is for sale online at www.lulu.com. Jephcott worked with Louise Sproule and The Review to pull her project together.
While you are here, we have a small ask.
More people are reading The Review than ever before — across our many platforms. So far, we have not put up a paywall to limit the stories you can read. We want to keep you in the news loop. But advertising revenues are increasingly going to the big two: you know who they are. If you value The Review’s independent, local community journalism, or you value the many ways we support dozens of community organizations in their endeavours, consider supporting our work. It takes time, effort and professional smarts to stay on top of community news and present well-researched, objective news articles on issues which matter to you.
If you read stories on this website, or you have come here from an Instant Article post on Facebook, think about subscribing. It would be a vote of confidence for the work that we do, and for the future well-being of your community.
