AX Literary Series: David Adams Richards 📚
December 17, 2022 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm
The AX Literary Series is pleased to present acclaimed Canadian novelist, essayist, screenwriter and poet, David Adams Richards, who will read from his latest book, The Tragedy Of Eva Mott, on Saturday, December 17 at 2:00 p.m at the AX Arts and Culture Centre in Sussex.
The Raskin brothers were once proud to be producers of a much sought-after material of great benefit to society – asbestos. But now their mine is under close scientific scrutiny, with reports of serious illness linked to the place.
In the shadows of an asbestos mine, the values of a whole community are changing in sinister ways. The story of Eva Mott and the book that bears her name will no doubt haunt readers.
David Adams Richards will be joined by moderator David Creelman, and there will be a book signing as well as a question and answer period following his reading.
Please note: Entry for the reading is free and will be first come, first served. To avoid overcrowding, those who arrive early will receive admission tokens which will allow them to leave and return when doors open at 1:30 p.m. Admission will be granted to those with tokens, and we will begin to distribute tokens when the gallery opens at 11:00 a.m.
There will be a bookseller on hand, and sales and book signings will take place after the event.
