Anakana Schofield reads from her debut novel, Malarky, at the Arts Centre in Sechelt November 22nd.

Award-winning novelist Anakana Schofield will read in Sechelt on November 22nd. Her debut novel, Malarky, follows the story of a widowed Irish farm wife through a struggle with her grief and her sexuality that is at times deeply tragic and at times darkly funny. The novel won the Amazon First Novel Award for 2013 and was short-listed for the Ethel Wilson prize, and has been described by reviewers as “exuberant,” “audacious,” and “brilliant.” It was included on at least sixteen “best book of the year” lists from The New Statesman to Georgia Straight.

Schofield also has a background in theatre and film, including several years in documentary filmmaking in Dublin, and is active in innovative cross-disciplinary and multi-media creations. She has lived and worked in London and Dublin and, now, in Vancouver.

Anakana is known for lively presentations, and she may even tell us about her new novel, Martin John, coming out next fall. Don’t miss her reading at the Sunshine Coast Arts Centre, Trail and Medusa, at 8 pm, Saturday, November 22nd. Admission is by donation, courtesy of the Canada Council and the Sunshine Coast Arts Council.
