Join us Wednesday, January 9 to bring in our first installment of the New Year with a presentation of YA writers.
Leah Bobet is an activist, bookseller, and the author of ABOVE, a magical realist young adult novel from Arthur A. Levine Books. Her short fiction has appeared in venues including On Spec, Realms of Fantasy, and several Year's Best anthologies, and she edits Ideomancer Speculative Fiction, one of the longest-running speculative fiction zines on the web.
Bryan Dearsley is an odd mix of the Old and the New Worlds. Born in Canada and raised in England, he’s a graduate of the second oldest school in Britain (King’s School Rochester, founded in 604 AD) as well as Stirling University in Scotland where his love of history, haggis and Hogmanay deepened. Bryan has been a writer and editor for 20 years, and is currently Editor of SkyLife Magazine. ALEX MORTIMER AND THE BEAST OF WILDEOR is his first novel.
Andrew Wagner-Chazalon is an award-winning writer and editor and the author of half a dozen non-fiction books. FRONTLINES, a YA novel about two parallel worlds, is his first book-length work of fiction. He wrote FRONTLINES while on a year's sabbatical in Australia, sketching out the first draft on beaches, in pubs, and in the car park between shifts as a school crossing guard. He lives and works in Muskoka, where he is the editor of Muskoka Life magazine, the Muskokan newspaper, and other publications that focus mainly on cottage living, which often allows him to go boating or visit people at their cottages and call it work.
8:00 pm at the Augusta House in Kensignton Market.
