Join Kingston WritersFest as we celebrate the launch of award-winning, bestselling Kingston author
Join Kingston WritersFest as we celebrate the launch of award-winning, bestselling Kingston author and festival favourite Wayne Grady’s new book The Good Father. Wayne will speak with fellow Kingston author and KWF alum Lawrence Scanlan about his first contemporary novel, which comically and tragically reckons with a father and daughter’s estrangement, the failures brought on by hubris, the limits of perception and the price we pay for second chances. Told in alternating perspectives, The Good Father delivers a deeply satisfying and layered novel of love, perception, family and domesticity. Propelled by regret, compassion, frustration and comfort, this novel gives us Wayne at the height of his powers.
“The Good Father is a wonder, heart-breaking and heart-mending at the same time, beautifully rendered in Wayne Grady’s inimitable, luminous style. Contemporary in its concerns but eternal in its laments and forgiveness, this is a novel to treasure. It affirms page after page with confidence and wisdom that our lives matter, that family matters, even though we wound those we love in ways that may not heal.” —Lorna Crozier, author of Through the Garden
The event will be followed by an audience Q&A via chat.
