Ellora – The Ellora Center for the Arts and Donna McCaw present an evening of music, stories and reading on Oct. 13.
Three musicians, including Paul Whittaker, known by his collaborators as the Human Jukebox, brought the music. Martin Featherston and Donna McCaw share stories and lessons.
Long-time Ellora resident Martin Featherston has enjoyed a multifaceted career, including artist, university lecturer, corporate CEO and author.
Her new book, ELORA – The Elora Center for the Arts and Donna McCaw present an evening of music, stories and reading on October 13. , was released worldwide in June and has garnered fast growing sales as well as exceptional reviews.
Readers will meet Earl, an inept reporter who, whether Earl likes it or not, becomes the media liaison for God.
Writing about the absurdity of life and the human condition, Featherston drew inspiration from his world travels. His writing style and humor are comparable to those of Douglas Adams, Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman.
The content is irreverent that challenges the reader to rethink entrenched traditions and beliefs. He is a witty writer who treats the reader with philosophical questions and insights.
Donna Macao published her novel Across the Great Divide Last spring.
Like Featherston’s main character, his protagonist Simon needs a life reboot. An uncomfortable ride in an ambulance, a close encounter with an angel and a rethinking of his past bring Simon to the brink of the realm of second chances. Her novel is full of musical references as Simon is a former touring musician with songs and quotes from his favorite authors in his head to guide him through the minefield of his life.
McCaw produced three Remembering Leonard In the evening and this is the first time since it was sold out.
However, no refreshments will be served at this show.
