TIFT brings Barrie-raised author to town for illuminating chat

Andrea Curtis

An intimate one-on-one conversation with an award-winning novelist, lyricist, publisher, journalist, editor, literacy advocate and Barrie-raised writer, comes to Five Points Theatre next week.
On Monday, August 20, Andrea Curtis kicks off Talk Is Free Theatre’s 5th Season of Illuminating Conversations with a special summer edition.
Her first book, Into the Blue: Family Secrets and the Search for a Great Lakes Shipwreck, won the Edna Staebler Creative Nonfiction Award. The Stop: How the Fight for Good Food Transformed a Community and Inspired a Movement, co-written with Nick Saul, is an international bestseller.
This spring she released a work of young-adult fiction, Big Water, inspired by the true story of one of the worst shipwrecks in the history of the Great Lakes. Ms. Curtis also writes books for kids, including a new non-fiction work, called Eat this!, and What’s for Lunch? How schoolchildren eat around the world. Ms. Curtis will be selling and autographing copies of her books.
An Illuminating Conversation with Andrea Curtis happens on Monday, August 20, from 7:30 until 9 p.m. at Five Points Theatre, 1 Dunlop St. W., Barrie ON. Tickets available at www.tift.ca, Five Points Theatre Box Office, or at the door. The event is made possible with the generous support of McBride Robillard Financial Solutions Inc.
