Lost: a memoir by Cathy Ostlere - an Author Reading - Saturday Oct 22nd

Calgary author Cathy Ostlere’s 2009 memoir, Lost, (M) was short-listed for the Edna Staebler Award and subsequently adapted into a 90 minute one-woman stage play. Lost: a memoir tells the story of one woman’s search for her missing brother but it is also a search for self — an intimate exploration of love, grief and meaning.

Lost is surely one of the most beautiful and powerful books to be published in Canada this year.” - Halifax Herald

- …an impressive work that resolves extraordinarily difficult material into moving, effective narrative and achingly beautiful prose poetry.” - Globe and Mail

You will be thinking about the book long after you have finished it. - Owl's Nest Books

From the beginning, there’s something in Ostlere’s tone; something in the slow, stately march of the words she chooses to relate this deeply personal tale. Lost breaks the heart, again and again. - January Magazine

Lost is a classic adventure story rendered in beautiful, sometimes haunting prose. But it is also a startling honest meditation on desire, family, and fulfillment. How does a man live an authentic life? And what happens when that life is lost?” - Karen Connelly, author of The Lizard Cage (M)
