In the Atrium, McNally Robinson - Grant Park, 1120 Grant Avenue

In conversation with host Bruce Symaka and signing The Children of Earth and Sky (Viking Canada). Co-presented by The Winnipeg International Writers Festival as part of our collaborative Spring Literary Series.

Guy Gavriel Kay evokes a world inspired by the conflicts and dramas of Renaissance Europe. Against this tumultuous backdrop the lives of men and women unfold on the borderlands-where empire and faiths collide…

A woman with dreams of vengeance, a wealthy merchant’s son, a young artist, a spy posing as a doctor’s wife, a boy seeking to rise in the ranks of the army… As their lives entwine, their fates-and those of many others-will hang in the balance, when a khalif from the East sends out his massive army to take the great fortress that is the gateway to the Western World.
