Published on: 2023/03/09 - in News

Kingston Frontenac Public Library (KFPL) and Queen’s University Library are teaming up to present an in-person reading and Q&A session with acclaimed author Iain Reid.

The event, which is part of the Bookmarks Series, will take place on March 31, from 2-3 p.m. at the Central Branch’s Meeting Room 1. Interested participants must register to attend.

Iain Reid, a resident of Kingston, is known for his books ‘We Spread’, ‘Foe’, ‘The Truth About Luck’, ‘One Bird’s Choice’, and ‘I’m Thinking of Ending Things’. His works delve into the depths of the human psyche, touching on themes such as love, loss, identity, and the mysteries of the universe. His novel, ‘I’m Thinking of Ending Things’, was recently adapted as a Netflix film.

“KFPL and our partners at Queen’s have been thrilled to present sessions with some of Canada’s best authors over the last year,” said Jake Miller, Librarian, Adult Programming. “This is the first in-person instalment of our Bookmarks Series, and we couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate than with one of our region’s literary giants.”

Interested individuals can register online or by calling 613-549-8888.
