Local author C.J. Lavigne launches her debut novel, In Veritas, a literary Canadian urban fantasy. There will be an author reading and book signing, with live music performed by Larry Steinbrenner. Admission is free. "Led by her synesthesia, Verity Richards discovers a hidden world inside an old Ottawa theatre. Within the timeworn walls live people who should not exist—people whose very survival is threatened by science, technology, and natural law. Verity must submerge herself in this impossible reality to help save the last traces of their broken community. Her guides: a magician, his shadow-dog, a dying angel, and a knife-edged woman who is more than half ghost." In Veritas is published by NeWest Press.
