Guy Gavriel Kay later this month at the Vancouver launch of his new book Children of Earth and Sky.
This is a real treat, as I'm a fan of Kay's work (and his occasional musings about Scotch on Twitter). The publisher was kind enough to send a copy of 'Children for me to read ahead of time (via White Dwarf Books, the local co-host of the event), and I've wasted no time diving into it. Two hundred sixteen pages in so far and it's superb. I'm already starting to mull over questions for the interview.
If you're on BC's Lower Mainland and you're a fan of Kay's work — or just a fan of great stories in general — be sure to come to the launch! In addition to our interview, Guy will be reading an excerpt from the novel, he'll take some questions from the audience, and he'll be signing books. If you need to add a few more of his works to your collection, White Dwarf will have a table where you'll be able to buy Kay's books.
Here are the details:
When: Thursday, May 19 at 7:30pm
Where: St. James Hall
3214 West 10th Ave, Vancouver

Not in Metro Vancouver? Here's a link to Guy's schedule of some of his upcoming launch events for Children of Earth and Sky. (I'm a huge fan of the McNally Robinson store in Winnipeg's Grant Park, and I believe he's also doing a reading at Munro's Books in Victoria on the 18th — a store which I always visit when I'm on the south end of Vancouver Island.)
