Please join the King’s Co-op Bookstore as it proudly presents an evening with Mark Sampson (BJH ’97) December 16 at 7 p.m. in the Wilson Room, New Academic Building

Sampson will read from Sad Peninsula, his recent novel that “takes the reader across oceans and decades, outlining the boundaries between seduction and coercion, between love and destruction, between a past that can’t be undone and a future that seems just out of reach.”

After the reading, Sampson will answer questions about his novel and sign copies.

Published by Dundurn Press (2014), Sad Peninsula is available in the King’s Co-op Bookstore, located in the basement of the New Academic Building. 

Sad Peninsula is Sampson’s second novel. He is the author of the novel Off Book. His forthcoming short story collection, The Secrets Men Keep (Now or Never Publishing) is expected to be released in 2015. Sampson' short stories and poems appear in literary journals across Canada, including in The New Quarterly, The Antigonish Review, PRISM international, The Nashwaak Review, The Puritan, This magazine, Pottersfield Portfolio, and FreeFall. He is a frequent book reviewer for Quill & Quire, Canadian Notes & Queries (CNQ) and other publications. 

The King’s Co-op Bookstore is an independent bookstore owned and operated by King’s students.

This event is open to the public. All are welcome to attend.
