Anne John- Aitken launched her first book “Incredible Memories’”at Spearwood Library in November 2009 so we are very pleased that she has chosen the same venue to present her second book “Incredible Memories Continue”
Anne was born in Haiti and enjoyed an idyllic childhood there and then adolescence in colourful, multilingual, multicultural Jamaica.
‘Incredible Memories Continue” takes up her story after her family left the West Indies to return to England and continues the story of her eventful adult life. As a member of Spearwood Library’s writing group the Tapestry Writers, she was encouraged to record her memoirs and she continues to be an enquiring, friendly and compassionate member of the local community.
She dedicates both books to her five children and six grandchildren and epitomises her life by her statement that :
‘Life is as beautiful as one wants it to be ; far too short to fit all one’s ambitions.’
The book will be launched by the Mayor of Cockburn, Logan K Howlett at Spearwood Public Library on Saturday 14th September 2013 at 10.00 am
