An Evening with Kenneth Oppel

by Events Winnipeg - Wednesday, Mar 05, 2014 at 11:36am

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. Visit him online.

Join facilitator Sheila Janzen and other aspiring authors ages 12-14 to improve your writing and discuss the work of Art Slade, author of the 2001 Governor General's and 2001 Saskatchewan Book Awards winning Dust. Using the book as a tool, we will look at themes, story arc, structure and format. As we workshop our own stories we will investigate desire as the engine of plot. We will also discuss when the writer should use dialogue to move the story along and when narrative might be better used. In the final session we will present our stories!

The cost of the workshop is the purchase of Dust by Arthur Slade ($8.39-tax included) It will take place February 18th-21st, 1-3pm in the Story Circle.
