Young writers share work

Young authors looking to share their own original compositions can do so at Think to Ink. The free, informal event up is open to writers between the ages of eight and 14 who want to share their work as well as give and receive feedback. This is not an instructional event. Think to Ink is sponsored by Writer’s Ink and will be held at the Waskasoo Room at the Red Deer Public Library on Jan. 22 from 1 to 3 p.m. Parents are asked to sign their child in and out when dropping them off and picking them up. For more information, call 403-357-2470.


Bluegrass concert

Stars in the bluegrass mainstream Chris Jones and the Night Drivers are headed to Red Deer. Jones and his band will hit the Elks Lodge on Jan. 29. Sponsored by the Waskasoo Blue Grass Society the concert will feature Jones’s low and mournful rather than sharp and soaring voice, says society spokesman Rich Roberts. Jones has become firmly planted in the bluegrass mainstream, Roberts adds. Tickets are available for $25 each at the Parkland Mall service desk, Red Deer Book Exchange, 53rd Street Music, The Key Hole, Jackson’s Pharmasave in Innisfail, Popow’s Auto Body in Lacombe and Novel Ideas in Rocky Mountain House. Tickets are also available at the door.
