Author Karen Connelly featured at March 22nd Calgary Women’s Literary Club meeting

In keeping with the 2015-2016 theme of highlighting Calgary authors, well known Canadian author and former Calgarian Karen Connelly was the featured author of a presentation given on March 22nd by Calgary Women’s Literary Club member Judi Lee.  Judi began by disclosing an interesting personal connection she had with the author going back to her childhood. Although they have never met in person, Judi’s family were acquainted with the Connelly family in the late 60s and 70s, their fathers having been employed at the same company.

  1. Judi: Thanks for highlighting Karen Connelly’s brother’s plight and the request for help from community, as well as family and friends. I hope we will soon be able to report to the Club that he is recuperating well, whether in Thailand or home. Janet
