Book signing goes well for secondary school teacher

Author meets and greets the public interested in her children’s book

Brittany Leonard is pleased with the response from the public to her first book, The Life of a Shadow, written in conjunction with her father Mel.

Leonard set up outside the Great Canadian Dollar Store in Chemainus Village Square last Friday, Saturday and Sunday to meet the public and sign copies of the book.

“It went so well,” said the Chemainus Secondary School teacher. “It was definitely helpful to have your article out there.”

The Chemainus Valley Courier printed an article about Leonard’s background and the book in advance of the signing dates. The article was also shared by numerous people through their platforms, including Chemainus Secondary School principal Lori Hryniuk.

“It’s the story my dad told me about why we have shadows,” Leonard said previously.

There’s a special section at the back of the book that shows how to make shadow puppets.

Anyone who missed the signing and would still like to purchase a copy can do so through Amazon or Leonard’s website, www.authorbrittanyleonard.com.
