Authors in the Hills of Mulmur – August 11, 2019 @ 1 pm at the Barn on 10th Sideroad Mulmur

Tickets are available @ YOUR Library

Authors in the Hills of Headwaters – coming soon

Back for the fifth year, this event held in a barn in the beautiful hills of Mulmur features three celebrated Canadian authors:

 Bianca Marais, last year’s Dufferin Reads: One Book One County author, will captive and move us with her second novel, If You Want to Make God Laugh. The novel focuses on three women whose lives in newly post-apartheid South Africa connect in surprising ways. 

Terry Fallis will launch his new book, Albatross at our event. His humour and satire are well known and he regales us with the story of a young golf prodigy that reflects on what it means to stay true to your dreams and yourself.

Tish Cohen will discuss, The Summer We Lost Her, an exquisitely written drama about a husband and wife, a missing child and complicated family secrets that strain relationships to the breaking point.

All three have been critically reviewed to great acclaim and are sure to be award winners in the coming year.

Teen Scene:

Teens tested their skills twice this week—once in our Day After Tomorrow Escape Room, and then again at our Teen Trivia night. We’ve had a lot of fun this week, but I think we better keep practicing our escape room survival skills!
