two events in particular are not to be missed: the friday night showcase at the CIGI auditorium; this year featuring alison pick and kathleen winter in conversation. and, on sunday, a terrific brunch at rhapsody barrel bar with a panel featuring helen humphreys, wayne johnston and karen connelly. the settings are intimate and the authors are award winners. dont miss it.
despair not if you missed out on tickets for our event with stephen heighton! we have another evening organized for monday november 6 at nick and nat's uptown 21. this time with karen smythe, author of this side of sad.
A gifted storyteller reminiscent of Alice Munro or Joan Didion, Karen Smythe finds poetic complexity in the seeming trivialities of the ordinary. Meditative, philosophical, and confessional, This Side of Sad is a provocative and piercing novel that explores the disintegration of a marriage; the enduring colloquy between the living and the dead; and the meaning we find within the random architecture of despair and joy.
