Two 2018 Atlantic Book Award winners, who happen to be married to each other, will read from their winning novels, Blood Fable and All is Beauty Now.
OISIN CURRAN grew up in Surry, Maine. His first novel, Mopus was published in 2008 and he was named a “Writer to Watch” by CBC: Canada Writes. His second novel, Blood Fable was picked by the Globe & Mail as one of the most anticipated novels for the fall of 2017 and won the 2018 Thomas Raddall Atlantic Fiction Award. Curran lives in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, with his wife and two children.
(Oisin will lead a workshop: Fictional Confabs: Writing Literary Dialogue on Sunday 1-3pm. Registration is required.)
SARAH FABER’s debut novel, All Is Beauty Now (Little, Brown) won the 2018 Margaret and John Savage First Book Award and was a finalist for the 2018 Thomas Raddall Atlantic Fiction Award.
