Keith Cadieux & Dustin Geeraert (Eds.) -- Book Launch

Wednesday Apr 20 2016 7:00 pm, Winnipeg, Grant Park in the Atrium

Launch of The Shadow Over Portage and Main (Enfield & Wizenty).

Winnipeg is a place of extremes. Winters are fierce and relentless. Summers are unbearably hot. It has been both the murder and auto theft capital of Canada and the Slurpee capital of the world. It is a place that exerts an influence, that marks and changes its inhabitants. This anthology features writers who have all lived in Winnipeg for a time and been inspired, horrified, changed by that experience. The stories here capture a tone of history, dread, violence, weirdness, and sometimes even whimsy; a tone that only Winnipeg exudes.

With preface by Jonathan Ball, afterword by David Annandale and contributions from John Stintzi, Brock Peters, Elin Thordarson, Keith Cadieux, Joanna Graham, Géza A.G. Reilly, Richard Crow, Christina Koblun, Eric Bradshaw, Zacharie Montreuil, Daria Patrie, Josh Moore, Jeremy Strong, David Annandale and Dustin Geeraert.

Keith Cadieux’s 2010 novella Gaze was listed for a Manitoba Book Award and the ReLit award. His short fiction has most recently appeared in Prairie Fire, Grain, ELQ, and the Exile Book of New Canadian Noir. He lives in Winnipeg.

Dustin Geeraert holds degrees in literature from the University of Saskatchewan and the University of Manitoba. After eight years in Winnipeg, he has nearly completed his PhD. He has one previous collection of stories, The Celestial Puppeteer and his academic work has appeared in The Lovecraft Annual and The Journal of the William Morris Society.
