LETTER: Local support made James Bay book possible

Thank you to Jennifer Blyth for the well-written article about my art and photography project

Re: Photo calendar celebrates James Bay (News, Oct. 22)

Thank you to Jennifer Blyth for the well-written article about my art and photography project expressing my love for the natural beauty of James Bay.

I am pleased that it mentioned the local support that made this book-calendar of photos and designs possible.

The article did not mention the title of my work so I wish to add that here: The Rapture of James Bay. Also, the actual name of the agency that provided me with the bursary to cover publishing costs is the Victoria Women in Need Community Cooperative (womeninneed.ca), not Women in Need Society. They offer many wonderful services to local women – clothing and furniture to women in crisis, personal development workshops, self-sufficiency programs and more.

Doreen Marion Gee, Victoria
