Local author and artist Diane Creber’s book has a tale to tell from the title alone: Don't Pee Under a
Tree in Africa. Learn more about this titular advice, and travel writing, during an author talk with Creber
at the Kingston Frontenac Public Library’s Sydenham Branch, from 2-3 p.m. on October 13.
Creber will read from the book, centred around her visit to a friend's home in Nairobi, Kenya. She
writes about her travels within Kenya, breaking down barriers in culture and communication, and the
experience of living in a Kenyan urban centre.
“Having a local writer speak about her work will encourage aspirational travel writers,” said Jake Miller,
Librarian, Adult Programming. “Diane will share her experience of a lesser-known locale and how this
life-changing journey translates into words. Travel writing is an art; we're fortunate to have the artist
with us to discuss the trade!”
Space is limited to 20 attendees. Register at https://calendar.kfpl.ca/event/7136189.
This program has been made possible by financial assistance from the Canada Council for the Arts
