WAM August 20-21 Wayne Johnston
The Colony of Unrequited Dreams, Baltimore’s Mansion, The Story of Bobby O’Malley, The Navigator of New York, The Divine Ryans, all works that are based in Newfoundland and all that say something ineffable about this place. So it may seem odd to note that the author of all these books, Wayne Johnston, born in Goulds, lives in Toronto.
But now Wayne is back in Newfoundland, both physically and in his new book, A World Elsewhere.
Wayne launched the new novel Friday night at the Writers in Woody Point festival.
CBC reporter Melissa Tobin was in Woody Point yesterday and had an opportunity to speak with him.
