Event description

Description

There’s no better way to end a Friday night than with pints of ice-cold beer and “ideas” chasers. On tap you’ll discover an eclectic mix of illustration, fiction, tragedy and historical fiction, poured through four of Canada’s tastiest writers.

Malagash (Joey Comeau)

Sunday’s father is dying of cancer. Her mother and her brother are both devastated, but devastated doesn’t fix anything. Sunday has a plan. She’s started recording everything her father says. His boring stories. His stupid jokes. Everything. She’s recording every single “I love you” right alongside every “Could we turn the heat up in here?” It’s all important. Because Sunday is writing a computer virus. A computer virus that will live secretly on the hard drives of millions of people all over the world. A computer virus that will think her father’s thoughts and say her father’s words. Her father will live forever.

In the Cage (Kevin Hardcastle)

A feared cage-fighter in Mixed Martial Arts, Daniel is closing in on greatness until an injury derails his career. Out of work in his rural hometown, Daniel slips into the underworld, moonlighting as muscle for a childhood-friend-turned-mid-level-gangster. While his wife works nights and his 12-year-old daughter gets into scraps of her own, Daniel tries to escape and build a nobler life for his family, but he sinks deeper into a violent, unpredictable world, soon sparking a conflict that can only be settled in blood.

Minds of Winter (Ed O’Loughlin)

Fay Morgan and Nelson Nilsson have each arrived in Inuvik, Canada, about 120 miles north of the Arctic Circle. Both are in search of answers about a family member: Nelson for his estranged older brother, and Fay for her vanished grandfather. Soon Fay and Nelson realize that their relatives have an extraordinary and historic connection, the “Arnold 294” chronometer, which reappeared in Britain more than a hundred years after it was lost in the Arctic with the ships and men of Sir John Franklin’s Northwest Passage expedition. The secret history of this elusive timepiece, Fay and Nelson will discover, ties them and their families to a journey that echoes across two centuries.
