KAMLOOPS - The Thompson-Nicola Regional District’s Library System hosts two informative author talks at the downtown Kamloops Library this month.

First, author Ramona Materi will be giving a presentation on Wednesday, Sept. 23, from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Materi blends 20 years of experience in economic development and entrepreneurship with an instinctive ability to spot business trends and opportunities. In British Columbia’s New North, Materi introduces us to doing business in the North. Filled with insights and practical advice, this presentation will inform, entertain and surprise you.

Next, on Thursday, Sept. 24, 7 to 8:30 p.m., author Calvin White will stop by to discuss his experiences working as a mental-health specialist with Doctors Without Borders in Central Asia. During his time in Asia, White worked to keep death at bay from the 400 patients in the care of the international humanitarian-aid organization. His experiences there eventually led to the publication of Letters From the Land of Fear.
