Reading at Aqua Books

Hi All.

On June 9, please join me and the other apprentices for the 2011 Sheldon Oberman Emerging Writers Mentor Program. (This program is put on through the Manitoba Writers’ Guild.) We will be giving a reading at Aqua Books at 7:00 pm.  You can find the bookstore on 274 Garry St, between Portage Ave. and Graham Mall.

I’ll be sharing 2 passages from my (presently unnamed) novel.  Here’s the 3-sentence summary:

After Julian’s wife and daughter died in a cabin fire, he spent three years working odd jobs and racking up debt.  When he turns up in Tucker Hollow, Vermont, it’s in answer to a newspaper ad promising he’ll “Get paid in gold!”  However, Julian soon learns that very few people are willing to put gold in a stranger’s hand without expecting something terrible in return.

Hope you can make it to the reading.  You’re in for a great night!
