Reading Words for Listening Ears

Ever asked yourself what it would be like to experience multiple books at one time? Saturday May 13th 2017 will allow just that and the possibilities of the experience are beyond endless.

I’m referring to The Bookshelf, a book fair led by the Writer’s Community of York Region, which will showcase the hidden gems and talent of 14 local authors who will share readings from a range of genres from Poetry to Fiction, from Children’s tales to Mystery. Starting at 10am and going until 1:30pm, people will be given the opportunity to go on storytelling tours, to hear the written words in their truly authentic nature, from the mind of their creator.

Some of our amazingly talented readers:

Bottom left: Donna Koffman, Mary Louise Jarvis, Wendel Messer, Val Tobin, and Cynthia St-Pierre

There is nothing like hearing from the written teller of tales as they weave through their work, doing their best to capture and intrigue the audience with the tools of their imagination and experiences. And the best part is, this is all a prelude to a larger world of story crafting.

Meet these writers and more inside the doors of The Bookshelf event. Think of these fourteen readers as the MC’s to a literary world of magic and wonder.  Listen; laugh; cry; take a spin on a rollercoaster; mostly though, enjoy!

Come Meet Your Next Favourite Author!

Meet Speculative Fiction Author Jen Frankel

Hello York Region! So excited to attend The Bookshelf and meet you all. I write speculative fiction of all sorts. From my flagship supernatural thriller series Blood & Magic to a YA sci-fi fantasy Leia of Earth–stop by and I’ll match you up with a good book!

Originally from London ON, I’ve lived all over this great country and love meeting new readers. I’ve worked in film, television, and theatre including backstage at the Stratford Festival, running my own screenwriting series, and performing at Fringes. I’ve also done a million odd jobs before turning to writing full time, from delivery driver to artists’ model to assistant parrot breeder. I’m also doing a new podcast called “Jen Frankel Reads Random S#it!” and co-host the Liquid Lunch talk show on ThatChannel.com.

Come by the table and tell me your crazy story. You can take home a novel, or stock up on eBooks delivered right to your inbox for under $3 each. And don’t forget to ask me about the original Vegan Zombie, aka the Undead Redhead.
