Nepean Book Club - The Stone Carvers by Jane Urquhart
When Governor General’s Award–winning novelist Jane Urquhart finishes writing a novel, she says she never knows whether another one is going to happen; it always seems like an act of such “unlikely magic”. Luckily for her readers, this magic occurs quite regularly. In Sanctuary Line, as in her six previous novels, Urquhart’s lyrical confidence sings as loudly as ever. The tale, weaving elements from nineteenth-century Ireland and Ontario into gradually unfolding contemporary events in the lives of one family, also threads together three different but very powerful love stories. Tonight is a rare opportunity to sit with a Canadian master and indulge in the art of her smooth prose. Tickets $25. (thebookpile)… (mais)
Localização do evento: PTC Studio, 3rd Floor, Festival House, 1398 Cartwright Street, Vancouver, B.C., Canada
