Letter to the editor 4, Nov. 1, 2018
Greenwood’s StoryFest 2018 came to its grand finale on Sunday, October 28 and we would like to thank the many people who took part in its success. Ten author events, a writers’ workshop and a film commanded great audience attendance and brought the brightest and best Canadian writers to Hudson once again. In fact, this was our 17th anniversary of StoryFest and, with more than 1000 seats again filled this fall, we enjoyed another fantastic season celebrating the written word.
An event the scope of StoryFest could not happen without the support and participation of many, and we would like to send a heartfelt thank-you to all our partners who supported us this year: the Town of Hudson and the Stephen F. Shaar Community Centre, Hudson Village Theatre, the Quebec Writers’ Federation, Boutique Pure Art, Bert Markgraf and North46, Galerie Plus, CLIO Books, IGA Hudson, the Hudson Film Society, the War Memorial Library, Hudson Fine Craft, Theatre Panache, The Journal, David Cobbett and 3MACS/Raymond James, Gerry and Elizabeth Semmelhaack and Frank Royle. We also thank our StoryFest Committee volunteers: Susan Gilmore, Julie Gedeon, Jane Havard, Marlene Donegan, Mary Vuorela, Heather Markgraf, Diane Ratcliffe, Sandra Stephenson, Suzanne Walsh and Stephanie Azran for their exceptional efforts, as always.
With deep admiration and appreciation we thank all the amazing authors who dazzled us this September/October.
And above all, we thank you, our incredible audience! It is a complete delight to enjoy StoryFest with you every year – thank-you and thank-you.
Stay tuned for our line-up for StoryFest 2019 – we’re already working on it!
With sincere thanks,
