Historical fiction author Joyce Derenas hosted a soft launch of her new novel, the long shot to a group to building mates in Worcester, MA on March 26, at 7 PM. The two-hour event included showing her book trailer, reading from her novel and many spirited questions. Refreshments added to the informal evening.

“I loved all the questions about Yukon history and the times,” Joyce said.

Derenas’ book covers a 1907-1910 journey across Canada and back.


Joyce Derenas is a historical fiction author who writes stories based on the real lives of her French-Canadian ancestors of the Beauce Valley in Quebec.
