Woodrow, Keith to read in London


SANDRA COULSON, Free Press Lifestyles Reporter   2003-07-07 04:14:19  



A nominee for the Amazon.ca/Books in Canada First Novel Award will be featured at a literary event during Pride Week in London. Marnie Woodrow of Toronto will do a reading from her book, Spelling Mississippi, on Wednesday at an event organized by the Matching Accessories Literary Trust (MALT), a group formed this year to support gay writers in London.

Thom Keith will also be reading and both Woodrow and Keith will be featured guests at a fund-raising dinner for MALT after the reading.

Timothy Findley described Woodrow's earlier short stories as "delicious, dangerous and delightful." In a London Free Press review, Nancy Schiefer said Spelling Mississippi shows "imaginative dare-deviltry."

The novel is about a Canadian tourist launched into mystery, self-discovery and romance in New Orleans when she thinks she witnesses the suicide of a woman who leaps into the river dressed in an evening gown.
