Book Launch Thank You!

My Book Launch was this past Saturday, November 23rd, at the beautiful clubhouse at High Point Equestrian Estates, and it was just awesome.

We enjoyed up to 70 guests, family and friends on Saturday.  Dear friends I hadn't seen for years were in attendance, even some very special people Casey and I worked with at Burnaby Correctional Centre For Women, including John, Helen and Sharon.  

I just want to thank all of you from the very bottom of my heart for all your love and support. 
- Sincerely,

You're Invited - The Book Launch Celebration


My book Behind Seven Locked Doors will be delivered this coming week and I want to share this special time with my family, my friends and the new friends who I hope will enjoy reading my memoir.  So on Saturday, November 23rd I'm hosting my book launch celebration.

It's been about realizing I had a dream and about having the courage to take the journey and  achieve my goal. It's a time for me of accepting my accomplishments and taking responsibilities for all my choices.   It has been such a wonderful learning experience.  My life has been full of all the things I love to do. 

Thank you for your support.

From jail to the Olympics - the true story of how one woman brought the beauty of flowers into a maximum security prison and forever changed the lives of the women prisoners and the correctional administration.  Amongst murderers, prostitutes, drug dealers and addicts, June Strandberg taught the art of flower arranging. She battled prison officials to allow her women access to scissors, knives, rose strippers, wire cutters and a bolt cutter.  For June, her project and vision was wasn’t about what the women had done to get themselves incarcerated; it was about what they could become. 

One of the highlights of success came in 2008 when June and her team, together with another professional florist, Margitta Schulz, secured the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympic bid to create the victory bouquets. The success behind this achievement was June's enduring belief in her vision, to truly see how the beauty of flowers could transform the soul. 

June’s biography is a poetic gift and in her own words she describes the true meaning of flower power and gives us a rare glimpse of life behind seven locked doors.
