Hello, New Brunswick! Are you ever in for a treat!
Even before we whoop it up here in St. John’s, Chad Pelley will be in full-on book launch mode in the Picture Province. Pelley leaves tomorrow morning for an Every Little Thing mini-tour that includes stops in Fredericton, St. John, and Moncton. Details below!
Chad will be Fredericton at Westminster Books on March 26 at 7pm. Admission is free and all are welcome to attend!
Stop Two: Get a fine meal & a signed copy of Pelley’s new book!
Salon and Breakwater Books present author Chad Pelley for a special evening at The Shadow Lawn Inn in Rothesay, on Wednesday, March 27, at 6 p.m., to celebrate Pelley’s winning the inaugural Salon Fiction Prize. Join Pelley and host Mike Landry, the Telegraph-Journal’s arts and culture editor, for a reading, conversation and a special Newfoundland-themed dinner from Chef Nancy Fox.
Tickets are $50 for the event and include a copy of Pelley’s soon-to-be-released sophomore novel, Every Little Thing. Enjoy a lovely meal, support local literature and head home with a signed copy of Pelley’s new book. Pelley received the $1,000 Salon Fiction Prize for his short story “A Short Look at Nothing”, beating out more than 100 other writers from across Canada. Based in St. John’s, Newfoundland, Pelley is one of the Rock’s top emerging writers.
“Here is complicated love, human failing, tenacity and true feeling. Chad Pelley takes on addling jealousy, heartache, loss, and the need to be forgiven. Stylistically fresh, taut with emotional torques and charges, Pelley’s Every Little Thing is can’t-put-it-down compelling.” — Lisa Moore, Canada Reads winner
