Tri-City Wordsmiths writing group holds its next meeting on Saturday, June 4 at Port Coquitlam’s Terry Fox Library and that question will be the key.
“Speculative Fiction: The Literature of ‘What If?’” will be presented by New Westminster instructor and author Eileen Kernaghan, who has written nine historical fantasy novels and is a three-time winner of the Aurora Award for Canadian speculative fiction. Her latest novel, Sophie, in Shadow (Thistledown Press, 2014) was shortlisted for the Sheila Egoff BC Book Prize and the Sunburst Award for Canadian Literature of the Fantastic.
Kernaghan regularly leads writing workshops at the Shadbolt Centre for the Arts (Burnaby) and Kyle Centre (Port Moody), and her speculative short stories and poems have appeared in a number of North American magazines and anthologies over the years.
Learn about the strange and wonderful world of speculative fiction, which includes such genres as science fiction, fantasy, fairy tales, magic realism and ghost stories.
The meeting is free to attend — it runs from 2 to 4:30 p.m. at Fox, 2470 Mary Hill Rd. — but library registration is required by calling 604-927-7999.
Meetings of the Tri-City Wordsmiths are held on the first Saturday of every second month. For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
