Author to discuss latest book
Author Margaret Macpherson’s Body Trade follows two fictional young girls from the Northwest Territories on their adventure through California, Mexico and Central America. The trip takes a dark turn when the girls get involved with predators of the Central America sex trade.
The author will read from and discuss Body Trade, her seventh book, at a free event held at the Airdrie Public Library on March 22 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.
“There’s really something for everyone,” said Anne Beaty, communication co-coordinator for the library.
The evening will also include a book-club-led discussion on the book as well as a writers-club-led discussion on the publishing and writing process.
Attendees can expect a relaxing and entertaining evening while they enjoy wine and cheese by fireside.
“You can come for the whole evening or for part of the evening,” Beaty said.
Macpherson is an award-winning author who is known for her non-fiction book Nellie McClung: Voice for the Voiceless, which won the 2004 Canadian Authors Association Exploring Alberta Award.
Her collection of short stories called Perilous Departures was a finalist for the 2004 Mary Scorer Award for Best Book by Manitoba Publisher. Those interested in attending are asked to contact the library at 403-948-0600.
