Local author, farmer, and organizer Aric McBay’s will present his debut work of fiction, Kraken Calling, at Kingston Frontenac Public Library (KFPL) later this summer. The book explores the question of “What could happen in one generation to a society already on the brink of collapse?” by shifting the narrative from 2028 to 2051.
On Saturday, Jul. 9, 2022, McBay is showcasing Kraken Calling at KFPL’s Central Branch from 2 to 3:30 p.m. with a reading, multimedia presentation, and Q&A session, the library stated. Interested participants can register at https://calendar.kfpl.ca/event/6730531.
“Having Aric return to the library to promote his debut work of fiction is something special! We’ve hosted Aric before and he packed the room,” said Jake Miller, Librarian, Adult Programming. “Shared community interest in environmental activism has only grown since then, and having a local author at the library is an opportunity for the community to reconnect over this topic after a challenging time.”
