MONTREAL, NOVEMBER 12, 2012- Royal West Academy in Montreal West (189 Easton) will be hosting an “evening of reading” with Canadian novelist and author Roch Carrier on Wednesday November 28 (7 p.m.).
Mr. Carrier will read from his extraordinarily popular book “The Hockey Sweater” and take part in a Q&A session. The Royal West Academy Honor Band will also be in attendance, playing a selection of hockey themed music.
Beginning his career with the publications of short stories and poems in the late fifties and sixties, Mr, Carrier is considered a Canadian icon. His work is characterized by humor and often sentimental portrayals of Quebec rural life.
Individuals in attendance will be given the opportunity to purchase raffle tickets and 20 winners will be chosen to receive a copy of “The Hockey Sweater” personally autographed by Mr. Carrier after the event. Tickets for the draw can be ordered online or bought during the event at the price of $10 for one and $25 for three.
Tickets for the event can be purchased at Royal West Academy directly or online at www.royalwestacademy.com/foundation. Tickets for adults are $20 while, RWA students and children under 10 are $10. All proceeds will go to the RWA Foundation’s Capital Campaign “Sharing the Stage with You” focused on creating an improved auditorium which will open up new possibilities in the performing arts and other creative endeavors for RWA.
