The Lakeshore Campus of Humber College will again be hosting two literary readings during the 2017-2018 academic year. The readings will begin at 12 noon. They will occur in the Assembly Hall, 1 Colonel Samuel Smith Park Drive (at Kipling Avenue and Lakeshore Boulevard West.) The authors will read selections from their work. Afterwards there will be time for questions from the audience. The readings are free and open to the public.
Krista Bridge will open the series on Wednesday, October 25, 2017. Krista is the author of The Virgin Spy. This collection of short stories was shortlisted for the Danuta Gleed Literary Award and a ReLit Award. The Vancouver Sun advises that “… for [Krista Bridge’s] staggering talent and honesty, you shouldn’t pass over this superb collection of stories … sizzling language and alluring, memorable characters threatened by competing desires….” The Globe and Mail reports that “The Virgin Spy is entrancing, and Krista Bridge is vastly talented.”
Krista’s first novel, The Eliot Girls, a novel full of drama and insight into the world of an all-girls’ private school, was a finalist for the 2013 Amazon.ca First Novel Award. The Eliot Girls was also shortlisted for the Rogers Writers’ Trust Fiction Prize.
