Book completed – book launched

 on May 24, 2019

Amidst a healthy feast of soups, stews, breads, desserts and other delightful food, about 200 gathered at St. George’s St. Catharines to help the Reverend Martha Tatarnic launch her first book, The Living Diet.

Martha described the evening of April 26 as one that “will go down in my personal history as one of the most incredible nights of friendship, food and celebration”.

The two hour event enabled buyers to get their books autographed by Martha, listen as she described the story which led to the writing of her book, meet people from a wide geographical area who came to be part of the milestone event and be entertained throughout by stirring and uplifting music.

“Fittingly the book launch was an embodiment of joyful eating,” is how Martha summed up the occasion.
