Book Launch - Kin, by Lesley Crewe Author

Please consider coming out tonight to the Keshen Goodman Library (Wed, Sept 19, 7pm) for an evening of entertainment and literature: a book launch by local author extraordinaire Lesley Crewe.

Lesley will be reading from her latest novel, Kin (M).

Lesley has long since been a favourite among our library's readers, as evident by the healthy circulation numbers for all her books. So come on out and find out what all the fuss is about!

Here is the publisher's description of Kin:

Traditions, created and subverted. Love, nurtured and destroyed. Friendships, marriages, and the wild beauty of Cape Breton Island. And above all, kin, in all its convoluted forms.

In Lesley Crewe’s sixth novel, we trace the tangled lines of loyalty, tragedy, joy, and love through three generations of families. Beginning in Glace Bay in the 1930s and ending in Round Island in 2011, Crewe weaves her most complex and engaging novel yet. The cast of characters is vast and varied–some with the island’s deliciously cutting wit, some dour and uptight, some frail, some resilient, and all inextricably bound together by their shared histories.

Brimming with humour, poignancy, and the maddening joy that is family, Kin is bound to be every Crewe fan’s favourite book.
