You know it’s autumn when there is an array of literary festivals during the weekends! Please join Tundra author, Richard Scrimger, at the Eden Mills Writers’ Festival on Sunday, September 18. He will be at the COMMON from 3:30-4:30pm along with young adult authors Adwoa Badoe and Tish Cohen.
Praise for Me & Death:
“…fast-paced tale of life and death… Scrimger packs a lot into this short, philosophical tale, which openly acknowledges its Dickensian inspiration. …an accessible story of redemption.” – Publishers Weekly
“… Scrimger creates unpredictable, sad, and authentic scenes that enliven the story … Scrimger’s novel is a difficult, compelling read that taps into teens’ fascination with death….” – Booklist
“Me & Death is veteran YA author Richard Scrimger’s witty and original riff on the Scrooge story.” – Quill & Quire
“…While Me & Death could loosely be categorized as a modern-day, teenage version of A Christmas Carol, its focus on the ‘now what?’ as Jim returns to life to face and make peace with the ‘living demons’ brings an edge that will enthrall young teens. Flip, sad, poignant, funny, and fast-paced, with vivid characters, this book will be enjoyed by a range of young readers….” – VOYA
“A simpler dark tale, a moral fable, emerges from Me & Death: An Afterlife Adventure…. The moral of the story is straightforward, lightened by Scrimger’s comic irony and energized by a suspenseful climax.” – The Toronto Star
