On Saturday, the WCDR welcomes author Guy Gavriel Kay. I hope you’ve registered already, because this is sure to be a great one. On October 21st, I blogged about Guy’s advice to writers, specifically not to get caught up in writers offering other writers advice. I look forward to Guy expanding on this topic. Every writer has an opinion on writers’ advice to writers–be sure to check out the comments on my RAW blog post for some interesting perspectives by fellow WCDR members.


Here’s a little bit about this month’s speaker:

Guy Gavriel Kay is the author of twelve novels (most recently River of Stars), and a book of poetry. He has written book reviews and social and political commentary for the National Post and the Globe and Mail in Canada, and The Guardian in England. Translation of his fiction exceeded twenty-five languages and his books have appeared on bestseller lists in many countries including several #1 bestsellers in Canada. Kay has spoken and read on behalf of his publishers and at literary events around the world. He has been nominated for and has won numerous literary awards and he is the recipient of the international Giolardos prize for his contributions to the literature of the fantastic. His past work includes the Fionavar Tapestry series, Tigana, The Lions of Al-Rassan, A Song for Arbonne, Ysabel, the Sarantine Mosaic series, and Under Heaven.
