Reading with Miles ~ Trains
Miles is 5 years old now, and will share his reading journey with us.
Julie Thompson has worked with children and youth for over 25 years. After experiencing a change in her family's life Julie turned to literature to help support her youngest through this challenging time. Unable to find a book that addressed her son's concern, Julie decided to write the book herself. Timeless Love is the first book of a series Julie plans on creating in hopes of addressing many of the everyday, and some of the larger, issues marginalized and racialized individuals experience. She lives in Toronto, Canada with her children.

Eleanor P. Sam
Eleanor is Canadian, born in Guyana, South America with West African ancestry. She is keenly interested in her cultural and historical heritage, in young women's empowerment and in Black women's health. Eleanor lives in Toronto with her husband. The Wisdom of Rain is her first novel. The Wisdom of Rain is a sweeping tale of tragedy, loss, and inhumanity, but it is also a story of courage, love, and spirituality. It shows how these qualities can transcend and defeat servitude and suffering in the most trying circumstances. It is a novel that treasures and restores the past, breathing life into a forgotten time and place and revealing its hidden pathways to the present.
