Join us in celebrating the release of Hunters in Paradise: Tales of a Nassau Childhood!

Join us in celebrating the release of the book Hunters in Paradise: Tales of a Nassau Childhood – a collection of short stories by sisters Lorraine and Janice plus an additional tale by their father, the late Eric Hunter. With humor and selective memories, it chronicles life on a tropical island in the late 1950s and early 60s including adjusting to living in a hot climate, meeting the neighbours, family history, race relations, tropical plants, and fruit, and some of their favourite recipes. Stories and music to be shared with a book sale and signing to follow. Light refreshments to be served.

She and her husband retired sportswriter Rick Matsumoto have two daughters and one granddaughter. They live and garden in Agincourt, Ontario, on the northern fringes of Scarborough.
