Nathan Whitlock - A Week Of This: A Novel in Seven DaysThe book, in case you're curious, has at long last been sent off to the printers, and should pop into view around the first week of April. For the moment, I'm feeling more relief than postpartum depression. More on that later.
To celebrate the release of his widely anticipated first novel, A Week Of This: A Novel in Seven Days (ECW Press), Quill & Quire review editor Nathan Whitlock will deliver a comic mock lecture titled "Seven Steps To A Seven Day Novel". Also, musician Alex Lukashevsky—whom Kevin Drew of Broken Social Scene has called "one of the best songwriters Canada's ever been blessed with"—will perform songs inspired by Whitlock's tale about the lives of an extended family over seven increasingly desperate days. — A This Is Not A Reading Series event presented by Pages Books & Magazines, ECW Press and EYE WEEKLY.
