Born in London, and now living on Salt Spring Island, Kathy Page is the author of several critically acclaimed novels and books of short fiction. She is reading March 7 at the Arts Centre in Sechelt.

Her latest work, “Dear Evelyn”, was the winner of Rogers Writers’ Trust Fiction Prize (2018) and she previously received awards both in the U.K. and Canada.  She teaches fiction at Vancouver Island University.  

“Dear Evelyn” is her eighth novel and opens in wartime London, telling the story of a working-class couple falling in love amid the chaos of a world in fury.  Inspired by her own father’s wartime love letters, Page follows Harry and Evelyn’s passionate and uneasy 70-year-long marriage.  This story of a marriage is told with unsparing reality, a depiction of the erosive action of time and of the transitory nature of early passion.   

Kathy Page is presenting her work at the Arts Centre in Sechelt on Saturday, March 7 at 7:30pm. This reading is part of a series offered by the Sunshine Coast Arts Council. Admission is by donation.
