New book celebrates Winnipeg charity
ALOCALLY based charity that has built seven community libraries in Ghana is profiled in a new book from Winnipeg’s Great Plains Publishers.
The Library Tree, by Ottawa author Deborah Cowley, tells how Winnipegger Kathy Knowles went from reading to a group of children one afternoon while in Ghana to founding the Osu Children’s Library Fund.
The fund, which Knowles runs from her River Heights home, also supports an English and Swahili publishing venture and 200 smaller literacy ventures in various African countries.
The launch is Thursday at McNally Robinson Booksellers at 7 p.m.
