This Thursday, September 28th, remember to come out and catch me at ‘Words in the Park 2019’!
‘Words in the Park’ is an annual book fair and sale held by the Writer’s Foundation of Strathcona County.
The event will be on Saturday, September 28th, from 10:00am-4:00pm, in the Agora of the Community Center in Sherwood Park, AB.
You’ll be able to grab:
In life, Edgar Vincent always maintained one great passion—himself. A semi-successful composer, his rock star lifestyle suited him well, and his narcissistic outlook ensured he was a man with few concerns. Callous comments, thoughtless promiscuity, binge drinking, and excess sufficient to shame Caligula were standard Saturday night fare.
Sundays for Edgar had always been a painful haze of sickness and regret.
So when Edgar finds himself in the cloudy planes of the afterlife on one particularly bleak Sunday morning, he determines that in order to find peace, he must put aside his ever-present hangover and try to figure out how he got to this point…and where he’s meant to be going now. But as Edgar makes his way through this surreal spiritual realm, he realizes that facing his death is hardly as difficult as facing himself.
Heaven, however, presents Edgar with an unending smorgasbord of hedonistic delights, so he’s in no particular hurry to change his self-serving ways. After all, considering he’s already dead, what more could he possibly stand to lose?
Through fourteen short stories, these writers take us to places as wildly different as the writers themselves. Further, all profits from ‘Edmonton: Unbound’ will be donated to support the Edmonton Public Library (EPL), who have been gracious enough to house our humble group for over a decade and a half.
And ‘Between the Shelves’:
‘Between the Shelves: A Tribute to Libraries by Edmonton Writers’ is a collection of stories by writers from the ‘Edmonton Writer’s Group’, including one by Brad OH Inc.
The theme of this collection is our shared appreciation of libraries and all they offer to readers in Edmonton and beyond.
So, come on by to the Agora of the Community Center in Sherwood Park, AB. on Saturday, September 28th, anytime between 10:00am-4:00pm to say hi, grab some books, and take in the work of many talented local authors.
I hope to see you there!
