Book Announced in The Columbian

By Toni Partington

Women inspire Vancouver writer

Vancouver’s Toni Partington has been writing since she was 10 years old and has helped others with their books. Now the Vancouver resident has a book of her own, “Wind Wing.”

Partington launched “Wind Wing” during a Thursday open mic poetry night at Cover to Cover Books in Vancouver, where the book will be sold for $10.

The second section reflects the women in transition that Partington met through her social work; the third represents some of her

“The book has been a long time in the making,” Partington said.
