Trail and Warfield, Day 2, Southern Tour
Posted by Karen Hofmann

In Trail we spoke at JL Webster Elementary to a group of mostly grade 7 students, with some grade 5 and 6 students.  Grade sevens were knowledgeable about poetry terms (persona, alliteration), and didn’t ask to know the name of the cat.  The teachers attending were enthusiastic writers as well, and contributed greatly to the event. 

We had the afternoon between readings to explore Trail, and I spent some time on the river walk, enjoying the mallards and Barrows goldeneye on the Columbia River, and the swallows above it.  The temperature was 30 degrees.  (But one swallow - or even a small flock - does not a summer make; the forecast is for snow Thursday…)

At the really wonderful Cornerstone Cafe in Warfield for a reading in the evening; a local writing group came.  It sounds like the West Kootenays has a flourishing literary community.

That’s a gorgeous photo. I hope the snow stays away during your tour!
