Scarborough Scribblers
Authors of Impromptu and Library Reflections | Writing at the Gravel Bar since 2014

Book Launch!

Saturday, June 3rd, 2017 (2:00pm - 4:00pm) at Albert Campbell Library

The exclamation mark is warranted; we're that excited about our book launch!

Impromptu Book Launch Flyer

Friends, Family, Fans (and random strangers): Come see how excited we are about the publication of our second anthology (hint: we're very, very excited!) and help us celebrate. There'll be music and we'll all read exerpts of our stories in our most dramatic voices (we've been practicing). Oh, and of course we'll be serving refreshments: appetizers, and non-alchoholic beverages like coffee, tea and pop (we'd rather toast with champagne but that's against Library Policy... yes, we checked).

Please let someone know if you'll be attending (by someone we mean one of the authors or the library). We'll be keeping a head count to make sure we have enough chairs and refreshments. Then again, not letting anyone know has its benefits (standing burns more calories, and dessert is bad for you... especially chocolate).

Signed copies of Impromptu and our 2016 anthology Library Reflections will be on sale.

Welcome to the Gravel Bar

If you've read Saul Riley Triaou's Introduction to Impromptu, you're already familiar with the Gravel Bar. If you haven't, I highly recommend downloading a free copy and finding out what the Scarborough Scribblers are doing at the Gravel Bar (gravelbar.ca). We could just tell you, but what would be the fun in that?

The next thing we'd like to address is our name. Why do we call ourselves the Scarborough Scribblers, you might ask? Well, we all met in Scarborough (Ontario, Canada not England) so that explains the first part of our name. We're also authors, and you know what authors love? Aliterations!

Our group was first founded in 2014 and we meet every two weeks. Yup, we do see quite a lot of each other, don't we? But at least so far, none of the other Scribblers have gotten sick of this author. Now lets move on, before I jinx things.

The Scribblers have now published two anthologies, one in 2016 and another in 2017. If you're starting to see a pattern, you're absolutely right. We do plan to continue publishing an annual anthology for the unforseable future.

If you'd like to read some of our work, you can start with our earlier work, Library Reflections, or our more recent publication, Impromptu. Both are available on Smashwords, Kobo, and several other eBook sites.
