Local author and artist Diane Creber’s book has a tale to tell from the title alone: Don’t Pee Under a Tree in Africa. Kingston Frontenac Public Library (KFPL) invites patrons to learn more about this titular advice, and travel writing, during an author talk with Creber at the Kingston Frontenac Public Library’s Sydenham Branch.

On Thursday, Oct. 13, 2022, from 2 to 3 p.m., Creber will read from the book, centred around her visit to a friend’s home in Nairobi, Kenya. According to a release from the library, she writes about her travels within Kenya, breaking down barriers in culture and communication, and the experience of living in a Kenyan urban centre.

“Having a local writer speak about her work will encourage aspirational travel writers,” said Jake Miller, Librarian, Adult Programming. “Diane will share her experience of a lesser-known locale and how this life-changing journey translates into words. Travel writing is an art; we’re fortunate to have the artist with us to discuss the trade!”

According to the library, space is limited to 20 attendees. Register online at https://calendar.kfpl.ca/event/7136189.

KFPL noted that this program has been made possible by financial assistance from the Canada Council for the Arts through the Writers’ Union of Canada.
