At Bay Press -- Book Launch

Tuesday Apr 05 2016 7:00 pm, Winnipeg, Grant Park in the Atrium

Launch of Dreams and Nightmares: At Bay Press Fiction Annual.

The short stories, artwork, and photography included in At Bay Press’s latest anthology illuminate the vastness of the human mind. Rich in archetypal themes yet modern in approach, this Fiction Annual is comprised of writing that explores the need to discern reality from delusion. The short tales and pictorial narratives are illusory, fleeting and spectral as they delve into the subconscious mind; these are tales that lure and unravel as only dreams and nightmares can.

Contributors attending will be Scott A. Ford, M C Joudrey, Michael Joyal, and Van Kunder. Editor Alana Brooker will also be present.

There will be a Q and A, interview style, with the attending contributors hosted by one of the contributors. Afterwards (time permitting) the audience will have the opportunity to ask the panel questions as well. Q&A to be followed by book signing with the contributors.
