Atlantic Author Day

by Kimberly on June 25, 2010

Hey, East Coast bookworms! I know you’re out there. Have you heard about the free event taking place in bookstores across the region tomorrow (Saturday, June 26) from 10:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m.? Atlantic Author Day is being put on by the Atlantic Publishers Marketing Association and features writers included in this year’s Atlantic Summer Reading Guide. You can find out more info, including the schedule of events for each province, at Atlantic Books Today or check them out on Facebook and Twitter.

While you’re here though, why don’t you leave a comment below about your favourite book by an Atlantic Canadian author? I’m currently reading Chad Pelley‘s Away from Everywhere. He’s the Newfoundlander behind Salty Ink and the Atlantic Canada Reads Competition. The book is about two brothers torn apart by a series of events and…that’s really all I can say about it. If I didn’t have to put it down to do other things, I probably would have devoured it by now because the writing is that solid. Plus, he’s a first time novelist garnering a lot of attention so you should go out and support him.

There. That’s my PSA for the week. Happy reading!

I like anything by Lesley Crewe. Her books are just fun and a nice change from the usual Atlantic Canadian books.

Oh, and, a favourite book is always too hard to come up with, but i am not over Jessica Grant’s Come, Thou Tortoise yet, and I read it months ago. She’s amazing, and more importantly: unique (in the good way).

I am still hooked on Chad’s “Away From Everywhere” as well…I plan on picking it up again very soon and reading it a second time…
