Ottawa's Festival of Ideas Since 1997

Cheryl Rainfield

Cheryl Rainfield's YA novel Scars was a Governor General's Literary Awards finalist, and her new novel, Hunted, has been nominated for the Monica Hughes Award for Science Fiction & Fantasy. Drawing heavily from her own experience, Rainfield's masterful narratives are realistically gritty, intense, and emotional—but also fantastical and paranormal. She comes to Ottawa with Hunted, a dystopian fantasy starring Caitlyn, who is telepathic in a world where such powers are illegal and must decide between hiding who she is or standing up for her kind against a corrupt government.
