Barbara Burgess, a QWF member and Montreal author, will read a few pages from her latest novel The Cacouna Caves and the Doorway to the Golden Planet: Book Two in the Cacouna Saga. The open mic event will take place at the Bibliothèque de Baie-D’Urfé (the Baie-D’Urfé Library) on May 30 at 7:30 PM.

Burgess’ novel is set in Quebec, this time in a not-too-distant future age. The first part of the novel is dystopian, as it deals with a world ravaged by climate change. The second part of the novel is utopian and presents an idealistic vision for the future of humankind and our planet. Her website is www.thecacounacaves.com
