Gail Boulanger of Nanoose Bay will be reading from her two books this Saturday

Author dishes about life, loss and adventure

Gail Boulanger has come out with a pair of books that cover both loss and hope and is bringing them out in Alberni.

Gail Boulanger has spent 30 years counselling people and giving talks on Vancouver Island. Now, she has come out with a pair of books that cover both loss and hope.

Life Goes On was originally written in 2002 and deals with losing, letting go and living again.

For her reading, Boulanger covers the broader perspective of loss, then does a reading and holds a discussion.

Adventures Over 60, at the opposite end of the spectrum, includes stories taken from Boulanger’s own experiences, or those of friends and family who have agreed to share.

“The stories are designed to inspire, inform and invigorate,” she said.

The final chapter, A Wholehearted Life, “is about what helps us most, which is kindness and generosity.”

Boulanger will be reading from her books at Curious Coho on lower Johnston Road this Saturday, Nov. 24 from 1–3 p.m. Her books, published by Notch Hill Books, are available at Curious Coho for $22.95 each.
