On Thursday, March 3, at 7:00 pm, Aqua Books is pleased to present A Night of Mennonite Humour, featuring The Moonlight Sonata of Beethoven Blatz author Armin Wiebe and Veralyn Warkentin, with Dean Harder and Jacqueline Loewen.
Armin Wiebe is celebrated for his beloved, lexicon-expanding Gutenthal novels The Salvation of Yasch Siemens, Murder in Gutenthal and The Second Coming of Yeeat Schpanst.
He is also the winner of the McNally Robinson Manitoba Book of the Year Award and the Margaret Laurence Award for Fiction for his novel Tatsea.
Armin's play The Moonlight Sonata of Beethoven Blatz will premiere in April as part of Theatre Projects Manitoba's 2010-2011 season.
Veralyn Warkentin has enjoyed the rush of making people laugh since she learned to talk. She has worn quite a few hats: writer, director, playwright, producer, prof, mascot, crime fighter, blogger.
