Virtual Author Event: Kim Echlin
Tuesday April 27, 2021 | 7:30PM - 8:30PM
On Tuesday, April 27, Beach United Church will be hosting internationally bestselling author Kim Echlin reading from her new book Speak, Silence; a poetic novel about war and loss, suffering and courage, and the strength of women through it all.
Kim is a local author, and Speak, Silence was Sarah's Staff Pick for March!
Register at this link; the event is pay-what-you-can, with donations supporting volunteer-run food programs.
Written in Kim Echlin’s masterfully luminescent prose, Speak, Silence weaves together the experiences of a resilient sisterhood and tells the story of the real-life trial that would come to shape history. In a heart-wrenching tale of suffering and loss and a beautiful illustration of power and love, Echlin explores what it means to speak out against the very people who would do anything to silence you.
