We regret to announce the cancellation of our Winnipeg International Writers Festival Spring Literary Series event with Tara Lee Morin and Michael Kannon, scheduled for TONIGHT. Due to unexpected flight complications on her Canadian tour, Tara Lee will not arrive in Winnipeg until later this evening. She will be busy for the next few days sharing her work with young adults in schools and youth centres.
As I Remember It, Tara Lee's frank memoir of foster care and its impact on her aboriginal identity, is one of the 2013 winners of the inaugural Burt Awards for First Nations, Metis, and Inuit Literature. It is available now in store.
The 2014 Burt Awards Gala will take place on September 27 as part of THIN AIR 2014.
Our Spring Literary Series continues next Tuesday with poets Gillian Sze and Chimwemwe Undi. More more information on that event, please click here.Categories: Site News, Winnipeg, Event News
We're so very pleased to announce that one of Canada's most beloved authors, Kenneth Oppel, will be joining us on Monday May 12 at 7:00 pm in Winnipeg to launch his new book The Boundless (HaperCollins Canada). The official event listing is here.
Oppel will be speaking about his latest work and reading selections before signing books for those in attendance.
Will Everett wasn't born with a silver spoon in his mouth, but after his family's fortunes change, he finds himself with a first-class ticket for The Boundless. The longest, most glamorous locomotive in the world, it stretches more than eleven kilometres long and pulls an astounding 987 cars: passenger cars, shooting galleries, gardens, an onboard swimming pool, cinema and much more. But its maiden voyage won't be a smooth ride for Will. Sasquatches, bog-dwelling hags, murder, and illusions abound in this outsized middle-grade adventure.
Kenneth Oppel is the Governor General's Award-winning author of the Airborn series and the Silverwing saga, which has sold over a million copies worldwide. His most recent novels are Half Brother, winner of both the CLA Book of the Year for Children Award and the Young Adult Book award; This Dark Endeavour, finalist for the Governor General's Literary Award; and Such Wicked Intent, finalist for the CLA Young Adult Book Award. Canada's nominee for the 2014 Hans Christian Andersen Award, Kenneth Oppel lives in Toronto with his wife and their three children.
