A night with author George Houston

The Sault Theatre Workshop is hosting a two-night book event with George Houston later this week.

During the event Houston will be reading parts from his new book Deliverance of Maria, hosting a question-and-answer session and also signing copies of his book.

According to the book description, the book is based on “A young girl orphaned and displaced during the aftermath of the Mexican revolution, finds her way to Cuba where she is taken in and raised by a wealthy Cuban family. With her coming of age comes an understanding of the prevalence of injustice and greed surrounding her,” states the description. “As her zeal for revolutionary action grows it takes her once again into the apocalyptic world she was lucky enough to escape from. From refugee to revolutionary participant she must find a way to survive and make her mark in a world where friends can be enemies and enemies can be friends.”

Ticket sales for the event are currently lower than organizers were expecting but Leah Frost wants people to know it’s still a go.

“I believe a lot of people are nervous because of the announcement from Doug Ford,” said Frost. “Rest assured that the event is still a go. With the limit of 25 people per night. We are well within the limit.”

The two-night event will be held between 7:30 and 9:30 p.m. September 25 and 26th 2020. It will be located at the theatre on Pittsburg Avenue. Tickets are $10 each and can be purchased by reaching out to Leah by email at [email protected]
