Presented by The Vancouver Writers Fest
Polly Horvath, Maile Meloy
Sit back and enjoy suspense, fantasy, magic and mystery—each in equal supply. In her tale set on Vancouver Island during WWII, National Book Award-winner Polly Horvath ushers readers into a forbidden night garden that grants everyone one wish. UFOs, hermits and ghosts make this garden stranger still. Maile Meloy brings her bestselling, critically-acclaimed Apothecary series to an end with The After-Room. She sets her story in 1955, vividly painting the Cold War era when everyday life for children—and adults, too—was permeated by fear of nuclear disaster and Russian spies were thought to be lurking everywhere. Turns out, Benjamin and Janie have the power to prevent nuclear disaster. Anything is possible in the creative minds of these fabulous authors.
