What a Pair! Ashley Audrain & Louise Candlish
Hosted by Leah Sarich
Memorial Park Library, 2nd Floor
1221 2 St SW
No one has reinvigorated the domestic suspense genre quite like Canada’s Ashley Audrain and England’s Louise Candlish. Both are in Calgary for the first time. Both are major bestsellers. Both write about everyday longings gone inexplicably, horribly, awry. Like Audrain’s new mother terrified of her child (The Push) or a very pleasant street undone by neighbourliness (The Whispers). Then there’s Candlish’s happily ensconced couple who find another family moving into their home (Our House) or a landscaping project that should never have been started (The Only Suspect).
