The vibe in the room was energetic and upbeat as a crowd gathered around Diane Lemieux to celebrate the release of her latest book, “Culture Smart Canada”.  Diane spoke briefly about the process of writing the book and the challenge of depicting her home country in an honest yet objective way, further complicated by the fact that she has lived abroad most of her life.
Diane declared “A Fear of Heights” regarding her initial desire to become a writer.  She spoke candidly about the small steps she took toward becoming a writer, gradually building her confidence along the way.   The audience was both moved and inspired.
Congratulations Diane!
