    Saskatchewan Author Night - July 25 @ 7PM - Lloydminster Public Library

    • Meet author Marina Endicott and hear her talk about her latest novel The Observer
    • About the book:
      • When Julia arrives in Medway, accompanying her beloved Hardy on his first posting as RCMP constable, she tries to explain her old life to new friends from the city, but can find no shared vocabulary to convey this rural reality, let alone police life. As Hardy disappears into long days at work, Julia takes a job as editor of the local news paper, the Observer. Interviewing people to compose a view of the town each week, she gathers knowledge of the community's surface joys and sorrows; meanwhile, Hardy is immersed in violence and loss, and Julia can only witness his increasing exhaustion. At first this new life together is an adventure, but as in all the best stories, time darkens and deepens it.
    • About the author:
      • Marina Endicott's first book, Open Arms, was short-listed for the Amazon First Novel Award. Her second, Good to a Fault, a finalist for the 2008 Giller Prize and a CBC Canada Reads choice, won the Commonwealth Writers Prize (Best Book, Canada/Caribbean). The Little Shadows, shortlisted for the Governor Generals Award, and longlisted for the 2011 Giller Prize, as was Close to Hugh, one of CBC's Best Books of 2015. The Difference published in the US as The Voyage of the Morning Light won the Robert Kroetsch Edmonton Book Prize. Endicott lives in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.
