Vicki Grant

Author of young adult novels to speak in Fernie

Vicki Grant will be at the Fernie Heritage Library for a talk on Oct. 22.

Vicki Grant, a renowned young adult fiction writer, will be touring libraries in the Kootenays, including a stop at the Fernie Heritage Library on Oct. 22. The tour is part of a larger cross-country tour for her new release Small Bones.

Grant has been acclaimed as a superb storyteller and is known for her sense of humour. She has penned 13 other titles, which have landed on a variety of shortlists and been nominated for literary awards across North American.

Emma Dressler, director at the Fernie Heritage Library, is happy to be hosting Grant, and hopes that youth will come out to see her speak.

“We are doing it at 4 p.m. and we are doing it at that time as it’s a way of getting all the kids in from after school,” she said, adding that Grant is known to be an interactive presenter who adds lively discussions into her talks and book readings.

The tour is funded by the Canada Council for the Arts and the Kootenay Library Federation (KLF), along with the Fernie Heritage Library. Grant will be speaking at other libraries in the KLF as part of the tour.
