Program Description


Join us on May 21, 2024 in welcoming Canadian authors Sara Power and Katalin Kennedy.

Sara Power is a Canadian author and former artillery officer in the Canadian Armed Forces, Sara Power for a reading and discussion of her collection of short stories; Art of Camouflage.

Author Sara Power

A powerful debut about the lives of girls and women caught in the orbit of the military.

Female recruits weathering toxic masculine environments. Military wives stretched thin across countless military moves, new cities and new selves. Military kids whose mercurial friendships flare and fade to the rhythm of their parent’s career path. Throughout, this collection introduces us to characters who trespass beyond the boundaries of their own realities to discover who they are within someone else’s narrative.

Sara Power writes with insight and emotional precision about what it’s like to be unmoored. Art of Camouflage is memorable at every turn, full of characters whose deepest motivations we recognize intrinsically as our own.



Katalin (András) Kennedy arrived in Canada as a child refugee with her parents, after the Hungarian uprising of 1956. In Ottawa, she obtained her degree in English Literature and Religious Studies. Her career was spent working for the Federal Government as a program manager of national projects addressing seniors’ and women’s issues. After retirement, she moved to Cornwall with her husband, the late Rev. Duncan Scott Kennedy. For ten years she was a monthly Columnist for Seaway News. Since 2012 Baico Publishing in Ottawa continues to publish her books: The Women Gather, Reconnecting, Echoes of Footsteps, Crossing the Threshold and Tree of Knowledge.

Kennedy was recipient of the 2016 Seekers Choice Award for Literary Artist and was one of the 2018 inductees into the Cornwall Arts Hall of Fame for Literature.
