60 mins

Lust and lies run wild through the pages of Farah Heron’s Jana Goes Wild and Zoe Whittall’s The Fake, two romantic comedies full of sparkling banter and honest, complex characters.

Jana Goes Wild has learned her lesson – do not step out of the comfort zone. But when she finds herself a bridesmaid on a destination wedding with everyone she knows, including her ex, Jana must decide if a walk on the wild side is really worth it.

In The Fake, grieving widow Shelby and newly divorced Gibson are both drawn in by the charismatic – and unbelievably sexy – Cammie. But as Cammnie’s intricate web of lies begins to unravel, Shelby and Gibson struggle to decipher what they want more: closure or revenge.

Moderated by Baraa Arar.

Please note, there was a change of date and time for this event. It will now take place on September 26 at 5:30pm in the Brigantine Room.

This event will be followed by a book signing.
