André Alexis Headlines Lawn Party & Outdoor Reading

Join us on Sunday, August 27th at 3 p.m. to welcome the Giller-winning author of Fifteen Dogs

We're thrilled to host André Alexis, among our nation's most celebrated novelists, at next Sunday's lawn party and outdoor reading at the farm. He'll be joined by two of Windsor's best loved writers: author, poet, and professor André Narbonne, whose most recent short story collection, Twelve Miles to Midnight, was shortlisted for the Danuta Gleed Award; and the widely-anthologized poet Dorothy Mahoney. Come out for this rare opportunity to meet an author The Windsor Star recently named "the current toast of the Canadian literary scene."

Date: Sunday, August 27th
Time: 3 - 6 p.m.
Location: Woodbridge Farm
Address: 619 Woodbridge Lane, Kingsville, ON (map)

In addition to everything we've offered in the past—free refreshments, relaxed atmosphere, old-time jazz from the 20s and 30s, and books on sale for signing—we're excited to share new swag and samples, including:

  • Free pour-over coffee tastings from Kingsville's first organic gourmet roaster, Red Lantern Coffee Co.;
  • Free giftcard giveaways courtesy of our best independent, locally-owned restaurants and businesses, including The Butcher of Kingsville, The Main Grill & Ale House, Merlis' Coffeehouse & Eatery, and more;
  • Our inaugural Random Review Copy Raffle, where everyone gets a chance to win books.

We'll be taking very short breaks between each author's presentation, then enjoying the rest of the afternoon under a lazy shade. It's our last outdoor event of the summer. Don't miss out.
