Well, it was a pretty even match, and the audience reacted just about equally enthusiastically to Jenn Haines’ choice, Jeff Lemire’s graphic novel, The Underwater Welder and Sara Sayyed’s selection, Alexis Andre’s The Hidden Keys.
A huge thanks goes to all of the panelists – Jenn, Sara, Marty Williams and Butch Carter (who was not able to attend at the last moment), for their spirited promotion of the books they selected. Thanks, too, to Marva Wisdom for another great outing as the evening’s moderator, and to Alan Pickersgill for organizing the event again this year.
So…Guelph. How about you read all of them!
Andre Alexis – The Hidden Keys
Martyn Burke – Music for Love or War
Jeff Lemire – The Underwater Welder (graphic novel)
Eric Walters – Walking Home
