This year the Chapters, Indigo and Coles stores are featuring "Canada 150" with catchy slogans like "Read North" and "The World Needs More Canada."

Happy to fit into such a theme, new author, Eleanor Deckert, will meet and greet, sign and share memorable stories of her adventures as a homesteader from 1978-the present.

"Back-to-the-Land" is what we called it back then. Or else "Back-to-Basics" or "Back-to-Nature."

Now people say "Off-the-Grid."

Both "10 Days in December"

and "10 Days in January"

are in stores now.

Meet the Author, Book Signing at 'Chapters,' Kelowna, BC

Author, Eleanor Deckert, travels from her rustic lifestyle near the tiny town of Avola to the big city of Kelowna, BC. "I am encouraged by positive feedback from readers," she explains. "Sharing my story seems to resonate with readers and they open conversations within their families." Marriage and divorce, birth and death, birth-order and sibling rivalry, early childhood memories and retirement, extreme doubt and life-long faith journey are all topics woven throughout this 2-part memoir.

'Chapters' bookstore in the Orchard Park Mall hosts this one-day event.

"10 Days in December" and "10 Days in January" are currently available in Kamloops and Victoria 'Chapters' and Vernon 'Coles.'

"I am delivering books to Chapters, Coles and Indigo stores in the Lowermainland in early May," Deckert announces.

"Will there be a Book 3?" Readers ask.

"Yes!" Deckert has all 12 titles outlined.
