Return of the FICTIONistas!
May 5, 2:00 pm in the Atrium
Your host for the evening is Charlene Diehl, writer, editor, performer, director of the Winnipeg International Writers Festival, and the author of Out of Grief, Singing.
The Spring 2012 FICTIONistas include Margaret MacPherson, whose latest novel is Body Trade; Arley McNeney, presenting her first novel The Time We All Went Marching; Alison Preston, with her newest Norwood Flats mystery The Girl in the Wall; and Sarah Kathyrn York, with her debut novel The Anatomy of Edouard Beaupré.
FICTIONistas is a collaboration of Coteau Books, Coach House Books, Signature Editions, NeWest Press, and Goose Lane Editions. Canadian independent publishers bring together women writers from across Canada under the FICTIONistas banner for a series of reading events 'with a difference'.
The discussions are lively, the performances are stellar, the secrets are revealing!
