Writer-in-Residence Art Slade
It was also great to see RPL's Writer in Residence, Art Slade, who gave the intros for the night. (Slade writes novels for young adults, and released the graphic novel, Modo: Ember's End last fall. It's related to his Hunchback Assignment series)

What I Learned about Life from Becoming a Writer.
Bidulka is the author of two series, one featuring Russell Quant, described online as the "first, and perhaps only, half-Ukrainian, half-Irish, Canadian, gay, ex-farmboy, ex-cop, world-travelling, wine-swilling, wise-cracking, Saskatchewan, prairie private detective being written about today anywhere."
His second series, which includes his latest, The Women of Skawa Island, features Adam Saint, an international disaster recovery expert. (Also from Saskatchewan, which he says some readers find surprising. Flood. Fire. Plane crash. Typhoons... Excitement. Adventure. Surprise!)
