Winnipeg Free Press - Section G - - ARTS & LIFE - By Bob Arm­strong

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.
