Masters book available again

Despite her advancing years, it seems there’s no stopping that Dame, Ruth Masters.

In light of the recent premier of Eco Warriors, a film made by Jennifer Pickford of Courtenay, plus the award of Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal given to Ruth for her lifetime contribution to the community, the book about her life — Us Dames Have Come A Long Way — is now back in print.

Renowned Storyteller, Hazel Lennox, interviewed Ruth some years ago and “Us Dames...” was the result, when all was revealed about Ruth’s past.

“Ruth and I had loads of fun putting the book together, and then touring local communities with it,” says Lennox. “We ran out of copies quite a while ago, but due to Ruth’s latest notoriety, I’ve been encouraged to have a second run, which I did.”

The indomitable duo will be present at Laughing Oyster bookshop on Fifth Avenue in Courtenay to sign copies of Us Dames Have Come A Long Way at 2 p.m. on Nov. 28.

The book received very positive reviews and has proved a popular read.

“I’m flattered that people are so interested,” said Ruth, before adding, “Of course, I feel like a prize heifer, though!”

Meet the Dame Herself before Us Dames is once more no longer available.
