Once you’ve had a nice lunch break after meeting David Dyment in the morning, make your way back to Books on Beechwood for a second round of book buying and signing. Catherine McKenzie will be here from 1:00 to 3:00 in the afternoon signing her book Spin.
From the book jacket:
“‘Imagine if Bridget Jones fell into a million little pieces, flew over the cuckoo’s nest, and befriended Lindsay Lohan along the way, and you are beginning to grasp the literary roller coaster ride that is Catherine McKenzie’s Spin. Filled with brutal honesty and wry humour, Spin is a story for anyone who has ever woken up hungover and thought, ‘Do I have a problem? Yes – I need to find a greasy breakfast.’ And by that I mean everyone I know.’ – Leah McLaren, Globe and Mail Columnist, author of Continuity Girl.”
Spin is whip-smart and hugely engaging fiction from an exciting new talent.”
Come down to Books on Beechwood to meet and chat with the author, buy a book or two, and get them signed! We look forward to seeing you all there! For more information about Catherine, visit her website at

Whether you spend part of your Saturday at the bookstore for one book signing or two, we very much look forward to seeing you here supporting your local book community and two great first time Canadian authors!
