Kenneth Oppel in Conversation with Kevin Sylvester
Tickets(price does not include service charge)
Beloved Governor General’s Literary Award-winning author Kenneth Oppel speaks with long-time friend and acclaimed author, illustrator, and radio sports host Kevin Sylvester (The Neil Flambé Capers, Simon & Schuster Canada) about the introductory novel to his anticipated new trilogy, Bloom (HarperCollins Canada), books, writing and life in the time of a pandemic.
At Bloom’s core is a strange, deadly plant that throws off toxic pollen when it matures. Strangely, three Salt Spring Island teens in British Columbia—Anaya, Petra, and Seth—seem immune. What’s their connection? What’s their secret? Whatever it is, they’d better figure it out fast: the invasion has already begun.
As the author of Airborn, Half Brother and the global phenomenon Silverwing trilogy, which has sold over a million copies, Oppel will talk to Sylvester about his process and his immersive world-building which has garnered him a loyal following among teachers, librarians, students, and enthusiastic fans alike.
Join them for a fun conversation on the Vancouver Writers Fest’s official YouTube channel, where we will begin streaming live on Wednesday, May 20 at 11:00 PDT.
