The 19th annual Thin Air, presented by the Winnipeg International Writers Festival, has concluded to a chorus of rave reviews.
The tremendous success of this year’s event was in large part due to the solid lineup of writers who shared their talents and expertise with large audiences throughout the festival.
One of those presenting writers was mystery novelist, William Deverell, who read from his latest work, Sing a Worried Song.
Deverell, who is one of Canada’s best known novelists, is also an activist and criminal lawyer. He described the way real life events influence the narratives he weaves through his thrilling tales.
Writer Allison Preston, who attended Deverell’s session, said it reaffirmed that mystery novelists are among the top literary figures in the world of fiction.
