I am so excited for our next author reading on February 5th! JJ Lee, the sartorial superstar memoirist behind The Measure of a Man: The Story of a Father, a Son, and a Suit, will be joining us, as will Karen Dodd, one of our most delightful North Shore Writers’ Association members.
JJ’s book was shortlisted for the 2011 Governor-General’s Literary Award for Non-Fiction, the 2012 Charles Taylor Prize for Non-Fiction, the 2012 BC Book Prizes Hubert Evans Prize for Non-Fiction, and the 2012 Hilary Weston Writers’ Trust Prize. Whew. Our NVCL Book Club read The Measure of Man this past Fall and loved it.
Karen is a first-time novelist, who has recently published Deadly Switch: A Stone Suspense. She has also published hundreds of articles, and teaches new and emerging fiction authors how to build their author platform while writing their books. She calls it “building the plane while flying it.”
I hope to see you all there!
