The Centre was recently invited to speak at an author reading at McDougall United Church. Marina Endicott read aloud some of her favourite passages from her second book, Good to a Fault.
It was an interesting read exploring what it means to be “good,” but what was really intriguing was hearing the author speak about living with these characters and how she didn’t like many of them, but felt sorry that she kept making bad things happen to them.
Having the author explain how she came up with the characters’ motivations and beliefs was fascinating and changes the way you have understood and perceived the story originally.
Have you heard an author speak about their book before? What did you think?
