The Longer Run author event!!

Come out and meet Valerie and hear her read from her book "The Longer Run" 

Valerie has been a writer for as long as she can remember, and an avid reader for even longer. After reading "The Diary of Anne Frank" at the age of twelve, she started keeping a journal, which she still does, though more sporadically nowadays. She has been a teacher of high-school English and a magazine editor, and has gone through careers in PR and publicity, including ten seasons in the Press Office of the prestigious Toronto International Film Festival, and a year with the National Film Board of Canada. She returned to teaching fourteen years ago – but teaching yoga this time. She recently graduated as a Holistic Nutritionist, and is now combining her passions for writing, teaching, yoga and nutrition.

Writing The Longer Run: A Daughter’s Story of Arthur Wint was a labour of love, which took many more years than it should have. It was written also out of a sense of duty, to make sure that her father's name and his accomplishments would not be forgotten.

Valerie currently resides in Toronto, Canada with her family.
