This month's reading series is on the 4th Wednesday (instead of the 2nd Wednesday). We've got a spectacular line-up for you!


KELLEY ARMSTRONG is a #1 New York Times bestselling author. She has been telling stories since before she could write. Her earliest written efforts were disastrous. If asked for a story about girls and dolls, hers would invariably feature undead girls and evil dolls, much to her teachers’ dismay. Today, she continues to spin tales of ghosts and demons and werewolves, while safely locked away in her basement writing dungeon. She lives in southwestern Ontario with her husband, kids and far too many pets. Her latest books are Thirteen, The Calling and The Hunter and the Hunted.


SCOTT FOTHERINGHAM holds a PhD in molecular biology and genetics from Cornell University. He has co-authored numerous scientific articles on molecular genetics, and closely studied the mechanisms of recombination using genetically engineered fungi, bacteria, and fruit flies. Raised in Nova Scotia, Scott lived for a time in a cabin he built himself in the Nova Scotia forests. He now lives and writes in Ontario. The Rest is Silence is his first novel.


DAVID NICKLE is an author and journalist living and working in Toronto. His stories have been published in year’s best anthologies, magazines and original anthologies in Canada and the United States and adapted for television. He is the author of the story collection, Monstrous Affections, and the bestselling novel, Eutopia: A Novel of Terrible Optimism, both from ChiZine Publications.


And featuring once again, our special musical guest...


KARI MAAREN uses her ukulele and her innocent demeanor to lure love songs into her clutches. Then she kills them, drains their blood, and sets their desiccated corpses on fire with the power of her disdain. She also teaches undergraduates about poetry.
