July 12th, Kagawong, Storyopolis, 1pm

Join Jennifer Farquhar for a reading of her debut novel, Watermark.

Meet and chat with Jennifer afterward and learn more about the inspiration behind her novel.

Watermark is a hauntingly beautiful story of Mina McInnis who, returning to her childhood home on Mikinaak Island after a twenty year absence, unravels the incidents that caused her family’s disintegration. She is determined to uncover the truth about the tragedy from her past, and the presence that dwells in the cold, dark waters of Lake Huron.

Originally from Manitoulin Island, Jennifer Farquhar draws on her own childhood island to paint Mikinaak Island into a rich and dynamic world, a love letter to the Northern Ontario that raised her.

Jennifer Farquhar lives in Kitchener, Ontario where she is an elementary school teacher and mother of three young children. Her short stories have won awards in the Manitoulin Expositor and the Toronto Star.

The event is free and open to all ages. Books will be available for sale.
