Master storyteller, Wilma Rubens, invites you down to the Fernie Distillery to hear select tales from her new memoir, Circling the Edge.

Grab a delicious cocktail and enjoy as she captivates you with mesmerizing adventures. From discovering Scottish mountaineering as a way to escape an oppressive upbringing, to expanding her horizons when hitchhiking through Afghanistan, to raising two mountain children in Canada, Wilma weaves poetic accounts of a remarkable journey through childhood, adolescence and into motherhood all while exploring what is means to be a woman.

It is an honour to be featured amongst the many talented Fernie artists who have graced this column.

Art is expressed through shades of individualism mixed with the spectrum of infinity, so really has no restrictive boundaries. Writing as an art form takes a lot of effort. Rolling off the edge of your mind, thoughts are difficult to correlate into something intelligible. This constructive act of composition can be most gratifying when it all comes together.
