Victoria "V.E." Schwab is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of more than a dozen books, including the acclaimed Shades of Magic series, Villains series, This Savage Song, and Our Dark Duet. Her work has received critical acclaim, translated into more than a dozen languages, and has been optioned for television and film. When she’s not haunting Paris streets or trudging up English hillsides, she lives in Edinburgh, Scotland and is usually tucked in the corner of a coffee shop, dreaming up monsters.
The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue is Schwab’s genre-defying tour de force. France, 1714: in a moment of desperation, a young woman makes a Faustian bargain to live forever—and is cursed to be forgotten by everyone she meets. Thus begins the extraordinary life of Addie LaRue, and a dazzling adventure that will play out across centuries and continents, across history and art, as a young woman learns how far she will go to leave her mark on the world. But everything changes when, after nearly 300 years, Addie stumbles across a young man in a hidden bookstore and he remembers her name.Categories: Authors, Saskatoon, Winnipeg, Author of the Month
It's been a busy year for Winnipeg author David A. Robertson, who sees two of his books published only a week apart.
In The Barren Grounds we dive into a new epic middle grade fantasy series based on traditional Indigenous stories of the sky and constellations, and in Black Water we follow the author's deeply personal journey of revisiting the past to not only heal old wounds but to discover a new future.
We hope you'll join us Thursday, September 24, 2020 for the virtual launch of Black Water. For more details on that event, please see this page.Categories: Authors, Saskatoon, Winnipeg, New Releases
