We are thrilled to welcome Juno Award–winning recording artist, Ron Sexsmith back to the Writers Festival stage. This time, as the author and illustrator of a wicked fairy tale of witchcraft, bullying, revenge, and a mysterious bowler hat.
Deryn Hedlight was not having a very good day and it was about to get much worse. He’d read stories of witches as a boy, but never believed for a second they were true. That is, until an unfortunate hunting accident turns his world upside down. What seemed like an honest mistake leads to an altogether unexpected transformation. But poor Deryn wasn’t the only wronged character tied up in these gloomy circumstances and sinister forces.
Deer Life tells the story of a kind-hearted boy from Hinthoven and his mother's undying love. Mostly though, it’s all about patience, friendship, and heroism where you least expect it.
