Award-winning author Wendy Orr was born in Edmonton, Alberta and has since lived around the world, including several years in Colorado, France, and England, and currently Melbourne, Australia. Wendy’s many books for children have been published in 27 countries. Prominent among them is “Nim’s Island”, which was made into the 2008 film of the same name; a 2013 sequel, “Return to Nim’s Island”, was loosely based on Orr’s book “Nim at Sea”.
Join us to celebrate Wendy Orr’s critically acclaimed middle grade books – “Dragonfly’s Song”, a finalist for the 2018 TD Canadian Children’s Literature Award, and “Swallow’s Dance”, forthcoming from Pajama Press on October 1. Wendy will be signing books and reading from “Swallow’s Dance”. All are welcome, and light refreshments will be provided.
