Location of event Alice MacKay Room, Lower Level, Central Library, 350 W. Georgia St.

Please join award-winning authors Guy Gavriel Kay and Ruth Ozeki as they read from their recent novels.

River of Stars (Viking) is Guy Gavriel Kay’s epic tale of prideful emperors, battling courtiers, bandits and soldiers, nomadic invasions, and a woman battling in her own way, to find a place in the world – a world inspired by the glittering, decadent Song Dynasty.

Guy Gavriel Kay won the 2008 World Fantasy Award for his novel Ysabel and the International Goliardos Prize, and is a two-time winner of the Aurora Award. His works have been translated into more than 25 languages and have appeared on bestseller lists around the world.

A Tale for the Time Being (Viking) is Ruth Ozeki’s powerful story about the ways in which reading and writing connect two people who will never meet. Spanning the planet from Tokyo’s Electric Town to Desolation Sound, British Columbia, and connected by the great Pacific gyres, A Tale for the Time Being tells the story of a washed up diary, concealed in a Hello Kitty lunchbox, and the profound effect it has on the woman who discovers it.

Ruth Ozeki is the author of the award-winning novel My Year of Meats and her book All Over Creation was the recipient of a 2004 American Book Award from the Before Columbus Foundation, as well as the Willa Literary Award for Contemporary Fiction.

Free admission. Seating is limited.
