About the Bushwakker Writers’ Corner:
Bushwakker Brewpub’s Writers’ Corner Seeks Books! Bushwakker is seeking donations of recent publications (2017-2019 publication dates) from Saskatchewan authors (all genres) to help expand their library within the Writers’ Corner. The goal is to gradually increase the size of the library each year. More bookshelves will be installed as the number of books increases. The books in the corner library will be available for patrons interested in reading works by local authors and the books are to remain in the brewpub at all times.
To be considered for the library, books must be a minimum of 40 pages and professionally bound.
You’re invited to drop off a copy of your recently published book (along with purchasing information which can be shared with brewpub patrons) to Grant Frew at Bushwakker. You can email Grant at firstname.lastname@example.org. Rotating individual author biographies and brief book synopsis are featured in the brewpub’s weekly newsletter and social media channels on a regular basis.
