Lights! Camera! Dissatisfaction…by Kim Cayer. Available as a paperback or e-book at Amazon, Kobo, Kindle, etc. 320 pages of “a relentless rollercoaster of a read” (says Cheryl Antao-Xavier, publisher at In Our Own Words Inc) by “a natural story-teller with a beautifully-developed sense of humour that beams from every page” (says John Ambury, Writers and Editors Network). The novel, a work of fiction, relates the story of Alice Kumplunkem, a woman who yearns to be a movie star but eventually just hoping for one spoken line in a film. With her drive and determination, things only go from bad to worse. Give it a read – see if you don’t catch yourself laughing out loud almost every page!

Ongoing Aida Maz Exhibit: MAC is proud to display the work of visual artist Aida Maz at Mississauga City Hall! Come and check out the stunning art work by visual artist Aida here at the Mississauga Arts Council office, 300 City Centre, suite 1055. Our hours are Monday- Friday, 9am- 5pm. In Aida Maz’ words: “This series of Hockney-style photo arrangements displays the presence of art that is omitted. By putting the focus on the character street art gives an area, these pieces provide social commentary on the inadvertence certain visual arts may often be faced with, specifically street art.”
