Event description

Description

Nova Scotia publisher Boularderie Island Press is presenting an evening of readings and book launches by four of its authors during a three-city tour that includes Peterborough, Kingston and Cobourg.

Bill Conall, who lived for ten years in Cobourg, received the Stephen Leacock Medal for Humour for an earlier novel, will read from his recently released anthology of short fiction Some Days Run Long. Mona Knight, who grew up in Ontario is the author of the Fortune Saga series of novels. The first in the series of westerns, Banjo Flats, was published last year and follows the adventures of a young woman, Fortune, who reluctantly becomes a gunslinger tasked with cleaning up the frontier town of Banjo Flats. Both Bill Conall and Mona Knight reside in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia. Kingston writer Sally Barnes will read from her latest novel Unleashed which was published last autumn. Unleashed follows a group of loyal dog owners who discover that their favourite dog park in Toronto may be sold due to the politics of some unscrupulous city planners. Peterborough writer T.E. (Tim) Wilson will read from his just published Wild Dogs of Mexico, the second book in his Detective Sánchez novel series. OUTtv announced earlier this year that the Detective Sánchez novels will be developed into a television series. Set in and around the sunburnt landscape of Mazatlan, Mexico, the serialized one-hour drama series follows Ernesto Sánchez, a transgender Mexican-Canadian private detective.
