Youth Anthology pot-pourri will Launch with New Cover Designed by Local Pre-Teen


On Tuesday October 7th, in front of an audience of largely family and friends, six young writers will read their published poems and short stories (3 in English, 3 in French), giving attendees a hint of the writing skill exhibited in pot-pourri 2014. Now in its eighth year, the pot-pourri anthology features the winning poems and short stories from this year's Ottawa Public Library Awesome Authors youth writing contest. 

This year's pot-pourri launch also brings with it the excitement of a new cover, designed by the winner of this year’s pot-pourri Cover Design Contest, 11 year-old Ariana Nezhat Pritha. Her vibrant drawing features a potpourri of shapes and colours. The design beautifully captures the spirit of the anthology.

We invite you to The pot-pourri book launch, which will take place in the auditorium of the Ottawa Public Library Main branch, at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, October 7th. All money raised from the sale of pot-pourri is used to support the Ottawa Public Library and the Awesome Authors Youth Writing Contest. Books can be purchased for $12.95 (no tax).
