An Evening with Lesley Crewe

Bookmark, Charlottetown’s locally owned independent bookshop, will welcome Lesley Crewe to Charlottetown on July 18 for the launch of her new book, Death & Other Inconveniences. An Evening with Lesley Crewe will take place from 6:30–8 pm in the Rotary Auditorium of the Charlottetown Library Learning Centre. The event is free and open to everyone. 

 The national bestselling author’s new novel explores widowhood, complicated family dynamics, and growing up at any age. Well, Dick’s dead. Now what? Margo, his widow, is trying to dodge the tsunami of paperwork coming her way. She doesn’t want to deal with the details—why do you think she was married in the first place? Lately life has been a tornado of siblings, children, pets, marriages, health issues, and endless bureaucracies. And at the centre of it all is Margo, living alone for the very first time, trying to endure everyone else’s judgements about the woman she is when she doesn’t even know herself. With humour and heart, Crewe walks readers through the incredibly disruptive domino effects of the death of one unremarkable man.

 Crewe is the author of many novels, including The Spoon Stealers, Recipe for a Good Life, Nosy Parker, Amazing Grace, Chloe Sparrow, and Relative Happiness, which has been adapted into a feature film. Previously a columnist and freelance writer, Crewe lives in Homeville, Nova Scotia.
