Mystery Monday with Curtis Parkinson

McNally Robinson Booksellers invited Curtis Parkinson for their Mystery Monday event. Curtis read two passages from his newest young adult novel, The Castle on Deadman’s Island.

If you weren’t able to make it to the event, Curtis did sign copies of The Castle on Deadman’s Island and Death in Kingsport that will be available at McNally Robinson on a first come, first serve basis. Thank you to the wonderful team at McNally Robinson for all their hard work and help!

Don’t forget to read Curtis Parkinson’s interview about The Castle on Deadman’s Island in The Kingston Whig Standard. In the interview, Curtis explains how Boldt Castle inspired this mystery novel.

Curtis Parkinson will be participating at this year’s Eden Mills Writers Festival on Sunday, September 20, 2009. He will also be touring Saskatchewan for the TD Canadian Children’s Book Week during Saturday, November 14 to Saturday, November 21, 2009.

There was a great number of people who came to hear Curtis Parkinson read. The audience asked him lots of questions, had their books signed, and had their pictures taken. Short video clips of the reading are posted on our youtube channel.
