The Book Drunkard Literary Festival

Join us in the Blue Heron Studio as we celebrate the release of Lucy Black’s new book Stella’s Carpet!

Stella’s Carpet weaves together the overlapping lives of those stepping outside the shadows of their own harrowing histories to make conscious decisions about how they will choose to live while forging new understandings of family, forgiveness and reconciliation. As the story unfolds, readers are invited to ponder questions about how we can endure the unimaginable, how we can live with the secrets of the past, and at what price comes love. An artful and engaging story of struggle and survival, Stella’s Carpet will resonate for those forced to find non-traditional ways to create community, and those willing to examine the threads that draw our tapestry together in this ever changing world.

Author of The Marzipan Fruit Basket and Eleanor Courtown, Lucy E.M. Black’s award-winning short stories have been published in Britain, Ireland, USA and Canada. A dynamic workshop presenter, experienced interviewer and freelance writer, she lives with her partner in Port Perry, Ontario.


This is planned to be an in-person event and we can’t wait to see all of you! Listen to Lucy speak about the book and get your chance to speak with her too – it will be a throwback to the good old days!


Please put this FREE item in your cart at the ticket link to RSVP ‘YES, I will attend the launch’ as we need to keep track of numbers due to Covid. Thank you.
