Wordfest Presents: Witches of New York by Ami McKay

This event will take place at the CPL's John Dutton theatre

The beloved, bestselling author of The Birth House and The Virgin Cure is back with her most beguiling novel yet. The Witches of New York lures us deep inside the lives of a trio of remarkable young women navigating the glitz and grotesqueries of Gilded-Age New York by any means possible, including witchcraft. This event includes a reading and on-stage interview, followed by a book signing after the event.

Ami McKay’s debut novel, The Birth House was a # 1 bestseller in Canada, winner of three CBA Libris Awards, nominated for the International IMPAC Dublin Literary Award, and a book club favourite around the world. While writing her latest novel, The Witches of New York, she discovered several women in her family tree who were accused and tried for witchcraft. Born and raised in Indiana, Ami now lives in Nova Scotia.
