A free event put on by the Ottawa Writers Festival tonight at St Brigid's! From the Writers Fest website:
Thursday, February 19th @ 7:00 PM
Chris Cleave and Priscila Uppal
Somerset Maugham Award-winner Chris Cleave's latest novel, Little Bee, was shortlisted for the Costa Best Novel Award. The Library Journal says: “Book clubs in search of the next Kite Runner need look no further than this astonishing, flawless novel.” Priscila Uppal's novel To Whom It May Concern is a modern, multicultural re-telling of King Lear, which explores the vulnerability and complexity of family and inheritance.
I can tell you that I read an ARC of Little Bee and it is absolutely amazing.
I'll be there!
