We are excited to host Canadian literary stars Anne Michaels and Wayson Choy this spring. We have had the pleasure of introducing both authors to Waterloo at previous events and are looking forward to hearing them read again. Words Worth staff have been been lining up to read both of these new novels. This will be a terrific night and an event that we are ecstatic about presenting!
Reviews of Winter Vault:
The long-awaited novel by the internationally celebrated author of Fugitive Pieces, the debut novel that catapulted Anne Michaels into the forefront of literary superstars. “The future casts its shadow on the past. In this way, first gestures contain everything . . .”
Anne Michaels’s first work of fiction in more than a decade, The Winter Vault is a stunning, richly layered, and timeless novel that is everything we could hope for for Michaels’s second novel — and more. Set in Canada and Egypt, and with flashbacks to England and Poland after the war, The Winter Vault is a spellbinding love story that juxtaposes momentous historical events with the most intimate moments of individual lives.
