Congratulations to Summerland author

I would like to congratulate Sherril Foster on the release of A Steady Lens. The True Story of Pioneer Photographer Mary Spencer

Dear Editor:

I would like to congratulate Summerland author Sherril Foster and her publisher Caitlin Press of Vancouver on the release of A Steady Lens. The True Story of Pioneer Photographer Mary Spencer.

Foster, former administrator of the Summerland Museum, tells the story of Spencer whose photographs include those of the notorious Bill Miner and his gang.

The quality of Foster’s organization and writing is excellent and the physical book itself a work of art.

The design, quality of paper and reproduction of photographs are outstanding.

Each year Caitlin Press publishes only two or three of the over 200 manuscripts it receives from hopeful authors.

Congratulations, Sherril on a job well done.

Susan McIver
