Grant Buday Book Launch & Reading: Tue Aug 26

Mayne Islander Grant Buday will be reading from his latest book, The Delusionist at the Agricultural Hall on Tuesday, August 26 at 7:30 pm.

The Delusionist has received great reviews in the Vancouver Sun (above the fold!) and BC Bookworld.

Anvil Press, when interviewed by Canada Reads, had this to say: "...Grant Buday is a brilliant storyteller, a master crafter of the self-contained worlds in which he places his characters. The characters in Buday’s fiction are real, everyday people that readers can relate to; they are people you pass by on the streets of your community.

The Delusionist also shines light on an under-examined atrocity in world history, that of the Holodomor, in which millions of people in the Ukraine were systematically starved to death by Stalin and his communist regime.

And, Grant Buday has a wonderful sense of black humour. The Delusionist is a funny, sad, and heart-warming novel about love, loss, creativity, and coming to terms with the horrors of history.

Refreshments will be served, including, of course, Eden's culinary delights.
