READING: Jeffery Deaver, Michael Robotham and Louise Welsh
International Festival of Authors, Tuesday, October 28 at 7:30pm
Writers Jeffery Deaver, Michael Robotham and Louise Welsh read from their latest works. Tanis Rideout hosts.

Jeffery Deaver is the #1 international bestselling and award-winning author of more than 30 novels, three collections of short stories and a non-fiction law book. His books are sold in 150 countries and have been translated into 25 languages. Deaver’s novel The Bone Collector, which introduced forensic detective Lincoln Rhyme, was made into a major motion picture starring Denzel Washington and Angelina Jolie. He presents the latest Lincoln Rhyme novel, The Skin Collector. A new killer is on the loose, and Rhyme must untangle the web of clues before the killer successfully targets any more victims—or Rhyme himself.

Tanis Rideout has been a finalist for the Bronwen Wallace Award for Emerging Writers and the CBC Literary Awards. In 2006, she was named Poet Laureate for Lake Ontario. Rideout also joined Sarah Harmer’s I Love the Escarpment Tour to read a commissioned poem. She was born in Belgium, grew up in Bermuda and in Kingston, Ontario, and now lives in Toronto. She is the author of a novel, Above All Things, and a collection of poems, Arguments with the Lake.

Michael Robotham started his career as a journalist, but then became a ghostwriter, writing many bestselling autobiographies in collaboration with politicians, pop stars, psychologists and adventurers. His novels have been translated into 23 languages. He is a two-time winner of the Ned Kelly Award for Australia’s Crime Novel of the Year and has twice been shortlisted for the UK Crime Writers Association Steel Dagger and once for the CWA’s acclaimed Gold Dagger award. Robotham presents Life or Death, the heart-stopping story of one man’s escape from prison the day before he’s due to be released.

Louise Welsh is the author of six highly acclaimed novels, including The Cutting Room and The Girl on the Stairs. She has been the recipient of the John Creasy Memorial Dagger and the Saltire Society First Book of the Year Award, among others. She has also produced many short stories and articles, and written for radio and the stage, including a libretto for opera. Welsh presents A Lovely Way to Burn, the first novel in the Plague Times trilogy. This chilling, tense and utterly compelling thriller chronicles the sweep of "The Sweats" pandemic.

ROUND TABLE: A Pox on Your Head
International Festival of Authors, Wednesday, October 29 at 7:30pm
Some of today’s top writers explore society’s obsession with contagion and mass infection, and discuss writing them into their fiction. Andrew Pyper hosts and moderates.

Nick Cutter is one of the pen names that acclaimed author Craig Davidson has published both novels and short stories under. His novel Cataract City was shortlisted for the Scotiabank Giller Prize. Under the name Nick Cutter, Davidson presents The Troop, the story of a group of boys who set out into the Canadian wilderness on a three-day camping trip that quickly takes a terrifying turn.

Charles Foran is an award-winning journalist and the author of 10 books, including four previous novels. His biography Mordecai: The Life and Times won the RBC Taylor Prize, the Governor General’s Award, the Hilary Weston Writers’ Trust Prize for Literary Nonfiction and the Helen and Stan Vine Canadian Jewish Book Award. Foran presents Planet Lolita. Told in the voice of a bi-racial girl and the language of social media, it is a riveting novel of desires and consequences in the unfolding digital age in Hong Kong.

C.C. Humphreys was born in Toronto and grew up in the UK. He is the author of eight historical novels, including The French Executioner, which was a runner-up for the CWA Steel Dagger for Thrillers and was optioned for film. He has also acted all over the world, with roles ranging from Hamlet to Clive Parnell in Coronation Street. Humphreys presents Plague, a powerful portrait of 17th-century London—a place filled with battles and intrigue, where a serial killer stalks his prey, scalpel in hand.

Andrew Pyper is the author of six novels, most recently The Demonologist, which won the International Thriller Writers Award for Best Hardcover Novel. His previous books include Lost Girls (a New York Times Notable Book), The Killing Circle (a New York Times Crime Novel of the Year) and The Guardians (a Globe and Mail Best Book). His forthcoming novel, The Damned, will be published in February 2015.
