An author speakers’ series that used to be held at Gallery Bistro — before the Port Moody eatery and arts hub burned down this summer — will rise next week at Port Moody Public Library.

The 13th instalment of Writers in our Midst takes place Tuesday at 7 p.m. in the Fireside Reading Lounge of the library (100 Newport Dr., Port Moody). No registration is needed.

Hosted by Erik D’Souza, who recently published an anthology with proceeds donated to Share Family and Community Services, the Nov. 19 event will hear from authors Debra Purdy Kong, Kalley Veenstra, Sheilagh MacDonald, Shannon Page, Margie Taylor and Eileen Holland.

Port Moody resident Purdy Kong will read from the latest novel in her Casey Holland transit security mystery series called Knock Knock; her sixth book, titled The Blade Man, will come out next year.

Purdy Kong facilitates the creative writing program for Port Moody’s recreation department.
