Join us for the Winnipeg launch of Andrew Battershill's MARRY, BANG, KILL (Goose Lane Editions) and Suzannah Showler's Most Dramatic Ever (ECW Press). Hosted bySeyward Goodhand

Co-presented by the Winnipeg International Writers Festival as part of our collaborative Spring Literary Series.

A revisionist crime thriller and page-turning hybrid of literary and genre fiction,MARRY, BANG, KILL follows Tommy Marlo as he runs to a quiet island to escape a swelling cast of characters who are trying to arrest, rob, kill, or save him.

Andrew Battershill's first novel Pillow was longlisted for the 2016 Scotiabank Giller Prize and the 2016 Sunburst Award and shortlisted for the 2016 Kobo Emerging Writer Award. He lives in Vancouver and Quadra Island, and is currently the Writer-in-Residence at the Regina Public Library.

When it debuted in 2002, The Bachelor raised the stakes of first-wave reality television, offering the ultimate prize: true love. Taking on issues of sex, race, contestants-as-villains, the controversial spin-offs, and more, Most Dramatic Ever is both love letter to and deconstruction of the show that brought us real love in the reality TV era.
