Luanne Armstrong reading from I’ll Be Home Soon at a Feb. 21 launch party.

The room was packed with locals who gathered on Feb. 21 to celebrate the publication of Luanne Armstrong’s latest two books at the College of the Rockies.

Although her novel for young people, I’ll Be Home Soon, was printed earlier last year, celebration of its release was delayed while the much-published author recovered from two car accidents. I’ll Be Home Soon tells the story of Regan, a resident of Vancouver’s downtown eastside, as she searches for her mother, a kidnap victim.

A series of essays in which Armstrong reflects on her nearly 60 years of life on a Kootenay Lake farm, The Light Through the Trees: Reflections on Land and Farming is a thoughtful and provocative look at rural living.

Also appearing at the book launch was Creston’s Ilana Cameron, who performed several short songs that she has written about history in the Creston Valley and along Kootenay Lake.
