Redeemer will host a reading and Q&A with local author Bernice Ranalli on November 21 from 5:00 to 6:30 p.m.
Bernice Ranalli is a Canadian entrepreneur and businesswoman with a passion for the
written word. An avid reader and gifted storyteller, she was inspired by the events of her youth to
write about growing up in an immigrant family alongside her developmentally delayed brother.
Her debut book fulfills her desire to share her story, in large part, to help others who have lived
with the same challenges, and to give them the encouragement and wisdom she has today that
would have sustained her so many years ago. Bernice currently resides in Mount Hope, ON. A
poignant account of the author’s life immersed in nature’s beauty along the southeastern shores of Georgian Bay, Paulie and Me is an exploration into the coming of age with a special needs
sibling. All of her stories about Paul take place in Hamilton where they grew up on Hamilton’s
West Mountain with their Dutch immigrant parents.
Redeemer Reads events celebrate the work of local authors. Redeemer is pleased to bring a number of authors to our campus in the 2019-20 academic year. Everyone is welcome to attend!
