About the authors and their books:
Frances Peck lived, worked, and taught in Ottawa for nearly 20 years before moving to Vancouver in 2005. Her first novel, The Broken Places, about an earthquake rocking the west coast, was a Globe and Mail best book of 2022 and a finalist for the Rakuten Kobo Emerging Writer Prize.
Part mystery, part tragedy, Uncontrolled Flight is the “impossible to put down” story of a pilot who dies fighting wildfires in the BC Interior, leaving behind a traumatized colleague, a grieving widow, and a conflicted crash investigator to piece together what happened.
Wayne Ng is a local, award-winning author, newly returned from a prestigious residency at the Joy Kogawa House in Vancouver. His last book, Letters from Johnny, won the Crime Writers of Canada Award of Excellence and was a finalist for the Ottawa Book Award.
A gritty family drama featuring the troubled life of a single mother, dogged by the brutality of past traumas and a code of silence that she must crack in order to be free – or else lose everything. With uncompromising grit and high-voltage prose, The Family Code unabashedly reveals the power and perils of parenting, but also the longing and vulnerability of children.
Tea and scones will be served!
