Event description

Description

Climb on board the Tall Ship Kajama for our 2018 adventure cruise. Travel to distant times and familiar places with Alex Boyd (Army of the Brave and Accidental), Andrea Curtis (Big Water), and Kerri Sakamoto (Floating City) onboard the Kajama. Hosted by Deborah Dundas, Books Editor for the Toronto Star.

Army of the Brave and Accidental (Nightwood Editions)

A genre-bending retelling of The Odyssey, Army of the Brave and Accidental is a modern fable: a story about relationships, parenthood, and trying to have an impact on the world told from the shifting perspectives of ten characters.

Alex Boyd is a Canadian essayist, editor, critic and author of the poetry collection Making Bones Walk. His second book of poems, The Least Important Man, was published by Biblioasis in 2012. Army of the Brave and Accidental is his debut novel. He lives in Toronto.

Big Water (Orca Books)

Christina, grieving the loss of her twin brother, has run away from home. She secures passage on the SS Asia. But when the steamship sinks, Christina must figure out how to work together with the only other survivor, a brooding young man.

Andrea Curtis is the award-winning writer of several books for young people and adults, including Into the Blue, about her great-grandfather, a steamboat captain who disappeared on Georgian Bay in the early twentieth century. Andrea lives in Toronto, Ontario. For more information, visit andreacurtis.ca.

Floating City (Penguin Random House)

Floating City is a novel about ambition and the relentless desire to belong. In a re-imagined Citizen Kane, Frankie Haneska is a Japanese Canadian emerging from that community's darkest moment and responding with limitless ambition.

Kerri Sakamoto debuted as a novelist in 1998 with The Electrical Field, winner of the Commonwealth Writers' Prize for Best First Book and the Canada-Japan Literary Award. Her second novel, One Hundred Million Hearts, appeared in 2003 to critical acclaim.
