Author Talk with Katie Zdybel

Saturday, July 30, 2022 11:00am - 12:00pm
Location: L.E. Shore Library Courtyard

Join local author Katie Zdybel and hear the inspiration behind her recently-published book of short stories, Equipoise. A young woman forms her own idea of feminine sexuality while skinny-dipping with her best friend's mother during a thunderstorm. A naive bride returns to her beloved Ontario farm country and, after an encounter with a young female beekeeper, suddenly sees her husband in a sobering new light. Under pretences, a rural doctor returns for her childhood friend, but finds the women in her new life have only a very specific use for her. A middle-aged woman facing the devastating end of a friendship as well as her last chance at childbirth, flees North only to be confronted with the complexities of life in the Yukon. The women of Equipoise struggle to find their positionality in life in relation to the women around them. They are also contoured by their geographies, caught between North and South, East and West, childhood home and adulthood home. They struggle to maintain a balance within the tension of their opposing female roles, landscapes, friendships, rivalries, victories, and catastrophes, always vigourously seeking equipoise.

Local Author Talk with Brock Martin

Saturday, August 27, 2022 2:00pm - 3:00pm
Location: L.E. Shore Library

Join us for an outdoor event featuring local author, Brock Martin, and his recently published book Side Launch. Brock will read from his book, talk about the story behind the story, and will be accompanied by musical guest, Bob Woodcock. The book is a historical novel about Corvettes - a warship built at the shipyards in Collingwood. About the novel: In the year 1939, Canada, unprepared but defiant, declares war on Germany and mass-produces a midsize warship, the Corvette. Neither designed nor equipped for the North Atlantic, the Corvette is tasked to take on the predatory sea wolves lurking below the waves. What could go wrong? - Action-packed historical fiction based on true events of WWII and the battle of the Atlantic. - The dreaded Wolf Packs, German commandos, a secret mission, spies and saboteurs. - Heart-breaking wartime romance. Ian and Kate struggle with love in difficult times. Will they find love or be denied? Ian takes command of the first Corvette built in Canada, the HMCS Collingwood. He is a man deeply scarred, having witnessed Nazi atrocities, and now driven by hatred. He will fight with any weapon he is given. Kate is the daughter of the Collingwood shipyard’s owner, a brilliant woman with a strong desire to make something of herself. She is ready to fight for her country but first she must fight for success in a male-dominated world. Will Kate allow herself to love or is there too much at stake? Side Launch takes the reader through a roller coaster of real events and dramatic head-to-head clashes, historic confrontation of epic proportions, and love and losses. If you are a fan of history and love to learn, this Canadian historical fiction Author Talk at the Library is for you. Contact: Emma
