PRLog - Sep. 22, 2011 - TORONTO -- Join author VESNA M BAILEY for a talk and the signing of her NOTES BEFORE YOU GO books NOTES FOR MY SON and NOTES FOR MY DAUGHTER, both recipients of the Independent Publisher Book Award (IPPY).
What would a mother say to her son and/or her daughter as they leave their childhood behind? Vesna Bailey has captured those last-minute words that are meant to last a lifetime. These notes were written to guide and inspire them in all things important, instructing them in a gentle way to live their lives with self conviction, joy, responsibility, peace, passion and reflection.
Beautifully illuminated with family photography, Vesna's NOTES BEFORE YOU GO books motivate the reader to Carpe Diem and be ready to find happiness at every turn of their life journey. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of these books will be donated to the IFM project Rescue the Children in Ghana and the Friends of the World Food Program toward operations in Darfur, Sudan.

“It's a love letter to your child. [...] I've never seen a book touch people the way this book as touched people.” —C.L., Milford, MI
