A Cafe For Authors and Avid Readers
Award-winning photographer Ann Edall-Robson grew up participating in equine events such as rodeos and gymkhanas and still lives near the rolling foothills, mountains, wildlife, ranching, farming, and country life that inspire so much of her work; both written and photographic.
An avid quilter and gardener, and fiercely committed to the need to share traditions, heritage, and stories that seem to be fast slipping away from modern society, she wrote Moon Rising as a sometimes comic but always loving expression of her belief in the country way of life that she was born into and raised by.
She was a finalist for the 2016 Mayor's Night of the Arts - Emerging Artist Award and is the author of two cookbooks; From Our Home To Yours: Cookies, and From Our Home To Yours: Cakes & Squares. She lives with her husband in Airdrie, Alberta.
Through photographs, verse, insightful musings, anecdotes, and short stories, Moon Rising takes a luxuriant ramble over a broad range of human emotions, evoking lightning bolts of empathy and recognition.
Gorgeous photographs are perfectly paired with deftly crafted text to create a visceral experience of the sights, sounds, and feelings of the human experience and rural life in particular.
With richly sensory detail, humour, passion, and keen poetic insight, the photographs, verse, and prose of Moon Rising offer a delicious smorgasbord of emotional highs and lows.

My partner will be painting her rendition of my work Letting Go. …Continue
