Over the weekend (July 17-19) Rendez-Vous Crime authors Mary Jane Maffini and Mel Bradshaw were featured at the Books by the Bay festival in Callander-North Bay, Ontario. Intermittent rain forced the relocation of events that were to have taken place on the shores of Lake Nipissing. Spirits were not dampened, however. Local artists used coloured sails and balloons to create a beach atmosphere in the Callander Community Centre, where Mary Jane and Mel read and talked to an appreciative audience Saturday afternoon. Gulliver's Quality Books & Toys ensured there were enough books for the crime writers to sign, and more than forty volunteers made the event run smoothly.
