The week begins

ifoa_logo IOFA The International Festival of Authors at the Harbourfront centre celebrates much more than the crime fiction genre and will be a delight for any dedicated reader to attend. Tonight there will be an event celebrating the authors shortlisted for the 2013 Governor General’s Literary Award for English-Language Fiction.

For those of us whose focus is of the whodunit/suspense variety, there will be writers the likes of Andrew Pyper, Louise Dougherty, Carsten Stroud, Linwood Barclay, George Pelecanos and Sarah Dunant. Don’t miss the opportunity to see these authors present their newest works.

As Young Adult (YA) books have become popular for all age ranges (think The Hunger Games) consider attending when authors Evan Munday (The Dead Kid Detective Agency) and Elizabeth Wennick (Whatever Doesn’t Kill You) will be reading from their books. I predict a refreshing experience. youtube authors YouTubeAuthors
