Those Generation Cycles
Fridays & Saturdays in August
Talks will be held at 11 am on Fridays and Saturdays at the Old Church (blue roof) 178 Borden Ave, Borden-Carleton through August. Island author, Farren Gainer, has written a new book, Those Generation Cycles – The Untold Story, available on Amazon and published by online Best Seller Publishing. The author presents himself as “a master of intrigue” with historical back-up to qualify the claim to be from “a 3rd generation of re-inventors.” He guarantees people will find his personal insights/inroads of some benefit. Gainer says that he hopes the subject material will lend itself to intriguing round-table discussions. There will be one-to-one and group consultations available on the days of the talk and through Aug. Farren Gainer came to PEI from Kingston, ON and before that from valuable work experiences in Great Britain. He founded Wild Hare Books in Charlottetown, a small press, publishing his own works such as Mice in the Wires, Soul Amazers, and Chugg – the not so little Bug.
