Well this is one way to publicize a book or two.
This Is Not A Reading Series, Vintage Canada and Penguin Canada invite you to celebrate the launch of Amanda Boyden’s novel Pretty Little Dirty (Vintage), and the paperback edition of Joseph Boyden’s novel Three Day Road (Penguin). Drawing on her professional experience as a contortionist and professional trapeze artist, Amanda Boyden will perform a balancing act with the assistance of her husband Joseph Boyden. There will also be a magic show by The Great Giffoni, and Amanda and Joseph Boyden will sit down with author James Grainger, Review Editor of Quill & Quire, for an on-stage conversation about the writing life. Afterwards, Amanda and Joseph would be delighted to sign copies of their books.
