Stephen Thorning e book launch on the Elora Centre for the Arts

Effectively-known writer and historian Stephen Thorning would have turned 74 on Might 8, which made it an ideal day to launch his e book on the Elora Centre for the Arts. Thorning had tucked away the manuscript and his sister Susan Thorning and the native historic society took on the undertaking of getting the e book printed. Elysia DeLaurentis edited the manuscript and 1,000 copies have been printed. The launch was nicely attended.
