The Niagara-on-the-Lake Writers Circle Books at the Barn is back.
On June 18, the same day as the Strawberry Festival, authors from the Writers Circle will be set up at tents at 322 Simcoe Street, across from St. Andrew’s Church, providing an opportunity to meet local authors, buy books and have them autographed.
The lineup of authors features:
Terry Belleville, author of Raising the Bar (A young couple struggles to restore a ramshackle country pub in Australia in the 1930s); Matters of Kindness (nine short stories reveal different aspects of kindness), The Printer, the Actress, and the Cat She Couldn’t Mention (a romantic comedy set in Buffalo and New York City), and Things That Happened Or Might Have (A collection of 15 short stories, many of them true).
Elizabeth Currie will be there with Lucifer’s Pride (rival sisters hook up with the world’s most notorious bike gang, and what price will they pay for love and money?).
Sharon Frayne, author of Caught Between the Walls, 10 ghostly short stories based on true events, and set in the long-lost historic NOTL Courthouse and Jail, will be there as well.
Paul Masson presents his latest novel, Evil Ever Lives, the fourth volume in his detective series the ABC Files. A collection of his first three novels will also be for sale.
Patricia Nicholls-Papernick, author of Annie and Fred, a biographical novel spanning more than 100 years, many hardships, two World Wars, Alzheimer’s and survival; and A Season of Miracles (a trilogy of short stories: a detective story, a fantasy and a love story).
Kathryn Recourt, author of Puppy Dog Blues, the latest in a young children’s three-book series, featuring Sir Archibald Droolsalot.
Additionally, books of several Writers Circle authors unable to attend will be available:
• Marie Kelly, a contemporary Romance author, with Fiancée for the Billionaire and Secretary for the Billionaire
• People’s History author Randy Klaassen shares memoirs of NOTL residents and other Canadian stories.
• Richard West offers three fantasy novels Lightning People: Discovered; Lightning People: Entangled; and The Hive Revealed, and a collection of short stories based on Second World War experiences, Recollections of War.
The books cover a wide range of genres and styles: children’s books, fantasy, mystery, romance, historical fiction, young adult literature, as well as memoirs and other non-fiction subjects. There’ll be something of interest for all readers. So stop by and have a look!
