About the book:
“Lucien and Nataša might have slipped toward love, if her past in Sarajevo hadn’t caught up with her. Nataša finds work modeling for a painter in Toronto, but he is murdered. Nataša disappears that night, running for her life. Her vanishing is connected to the discovery of a video, secretly filmed in a small town in Bosnia and Herzegovina during the war. ‘Butterfly’ is a novel that charts a controlled descent through the dark legacy of war and the underbelly of the global art scene…into a world ruled by a desperate hope for impossible redemption.”
Be sure to join us on Friday, September 13 between 5:30pm and 7:30pm for the launch of local author Ken Newport‘s brand new novel No Dress Rehearsal.
About the book:
“Change, and how we deal with it, is the central theme to ‘No Dress Rehearsal’, the poignant retelling of a tumultuous year in the lives of three people who have no connection other than a neighbourhood coffee shop. Telling their stories in first-person narrative, Terry, Lee, and Grant struggle in their relationships, careers, family and health in this fast-paced story stitched together by a music-board in the coffee shop. With short “song tracks” for chapters, ‘No Dress Rehearsal’ is perfect for today’s busy reader, telling a complex story in short, stand-alone, diary-like entries.
No Dress Rehearsal is wonderfully rich in dialogue, with surprising twists in plot, and readers will be pulled along by what turns out to be a most extraordinary year for all three protagonists, a year in which they each realize there is no second chance at life – there truly is no dress rehearsal.”
Books will be available for sale during the launch.
We look forward to seeing you!
