An Evening with Katherena Vermette *STANDING ROOM TIX AVAILABLE*
March 7 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm$20
REGULAR TICKETS TO THIS EVENT ARE NOW SOLD OUT. A SMALL NUMBER OF STANDING-ROOM ONLY TICKETS ARE AVAILABLE FOR $10 EACH.
Join Kingston WritersFest and Queen’s Reads for a special offseason event featuring author Katherena Vermette as she discusses her career and her multi-award winning book The Break.
When Stella, a young Métis mother, looks out her window one evening and spots someone in trouble on the Break ― a barren field on an isolated strip of land outside her house ― she calls the police to alert them to a possible crime. In a series of shifting narratives, people who are connected, both directly and indirectly, with the victim ― police, family, and friends ― tell their personal stories leading up to that fateful night.
A book signing will follow the onstage event. Books will be available for sale from Novel Idea books at the back of the room.
Are you a member of the Queen’s community? A limited number of free tickets are available to students, staff, and faculty members of Queen’s University. Find out more here.
BONUS: All event attendees will enjoy FREE access to the current not-to-be-missed Kent Monkman Shame and Prejudice exhibition.
Tickets $20 advance. Price includes HST and all handling fees.
Advance tickets available online* here and at Novel Idea Books.
General (SEATED) admission tickets are now SOLD OUT. We have a very limited number of STANDING ROOM ONLY tickets available for $10. By purchasing these tickets you acknowledge that you agree to stand at the back of the room during the event.
