Saskatchewan Book Awards Shortlist Part II (Reading and Signing)

Enjoy a special appearance from three Young Adult authors at McNally Robinson. Three shortlisted authors from the Saskatchewan Book Awards will read from their Young Adult books and answer questions from the audience. Arthur Slade will share from the delightfully creepy Flickers, Beth Goobie will read from her powerful new book The Pain Eater, and Madeleine Blais-Dahlem will read from the English section of her bilingual novel La voix de mon père / My Father's Voice.

About the book

She hadn’t told anyone. Not a single soul. Not one word about that night and what had been done to her had ever passed Maddy Malone’s lips. She’d thought about it at first - had been desperate, even frantic, to tell. But then had come the shame, and the intimidation from the boys who raped her - and the one who held her down.
