The HSW Literary Agency


February readings spotlight HSWLA authors

Next week is shaping up to be a busy one for HSW Literary Agency authors.

As we’ve already noted, Pamela Mordecai is slated–along with Rachel Manley and Olive Senior–to read at the Toronto Public Library’s Don Mills Branch on Wednesday, February 23 at 7 p.m. Part of the TPL’s Black History Month programming, the event will also feature a discussion on “the art of loving Jamaica.” Donna Bailey Nurse hosts.

The following evening and a coast away, Darcie Friesen Hossack will read from her Commonwealth Writer’s Prize-nominated collection Mennonites Don’t Dance (Best First Book – Canada and the Caribbean) as part of the Okanagan Institute’s Masters of Prose: Authors of Distinction event. The evening will also feature fellow Okanagan writer and Commonwealth Prize-nominee Adam Lewis Schroeder (Best Book – Canada and the Caribbean).
