Well-known local author Iain Reid will be reading at Kingston Frontenac Public Library (KFPL) later this month.

According to a release from KFPL, Reid will give an “unforgettable in person reading” and Q&A session at the Central Branch from 2 to 3 p.m. on Friday, Mar. 31, 2023. In partnership with Queen’s University, the Bookmarks series has previously hosted virtual talks from authors such as Jack Wang, Omar El Akkad, and Brian Thomas Isaac.

Reid’s books, including We Spread, Foe, The Truth About Luck, One Bird’s Choice and I’m Thinking of Ending Things, are a fascinating journey into the human psyche, exploring themes like love, loss, identity and the mysteries of the universe, the library shared. Reid’s I’m Thinking of Ending Things was recently adapted as a Netflix film.

“KFPL and our partners at Queen’s have been thrilled to present sessions with some of Canada’s best authors over the last year,” said Jake Miller, Librarian, Adult Programming. “This is the first in-person instalment of our Bookmarks Series and we couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate than with one of our region’s literary giants.”

Registration is required. Library patrons can register online at https://calendar.kfpl.ca/event/8117126 or by calling 613-549-8888
