LIVE in Your Living Room: Haunted Canada with Joel Sutherland [VIRTUAL]
Thursday, October 29 at 4 p.m.–4:45 p.m.Free
Do you believe in ghosts? Join Joel A. Sutherland, the award-winning author of the Haunted Canada series, for a virtual event filled with storytelling, history and humour. Joel will share some of his research and favourite spine-tingling stories, including some set right here in the Lower Mainland.
This event will appeal to readers and history buffs of all ages, though please note that Joel’s books are recommended for middle grades and older.
With over 400,000 copies in print, Joel’s Haunted Canada series is the go-to guide on our country’s spooky history. In addition, Joel writes fiction for all ages and has won the Silver Birch and Hackmatack awards. He has served as a juror for several prestigious awards including the Bram Stoker Award, the John Spray Mystery Award, the Monica Hughes Award for Science Fiction & Fantasy, and the Amy Mathers Teen Book Award. Fun fact: he appeared as “The Barbarian Librarian” on the Canadian edition of the hit television show Wipeout, making it all the way to the third round and proving that librarians can be just as tough and crazy as anyone else.
