K.A. Reynolds -- Book Launch

Sunday Aug 25 2019 2:00 pm, Winnipeg, Grant Park in the Atrium

Winnipeg launch of The Spinner of Dreams (HarperCollins Canada) featuring a conversation hosted by Nicky Mehta.

Annalise Meriwether—though kind, smart, and curious—is terribly lonely.

Cursed at birth by the devious Fate Spinner, Annalise has always lived a solitary life with her loving parents. She does her best to ignore the cruel townsfolk of her desolate town—but the black mark on her hand won’t be ignored. Not when the monster living within it, which seems to have an agenda of its own, grows more unpredictable each day.

There’s only one way for Annalise to rid herself of her curse: to enter the Labyrinth of Fate and Dreams and defeat the Fate Spinner. So despite her anxiety, Annalise sets out to undo the curse that’s defined her—and to show the world, and herself, exactly who she is inside.

K. A. Reynolds is a poet and author from Winnipeg, currently residing in Maine. Her debut novel is The Land of Yesterday, followed by The Spinner of Dreams. Her superpowers include risqué Mad Libs, smiling, and saving spiders from certain peril. When not typing, daydreaming, or caring for the elderly, she enjoys swapping bad jokes with her numerous offspring, herding various furry beasts, and reading strange and colorful tales expertly crafted by other imagination astronauts in love with words.

Host Nicky Mehta is a singer-songwriter, activist, and founding member of the internationally-renowned, JUNO Award-winning folk/roots band, The Wailin' Jennys.

Inventive, empathetic, and strange in all the best ways, The Spinner of Dreams draws from the author's own experiences to create a story that feels timeless and universal. As she did in her debut The Land of Yesterday, K. A. Reynolds thoughtfully explores mental health and crafts an adventure that fits right alongside middle grade classics like The Phantom Tollbooth.
