Beverly Akerman Wows Quebec City Bibliophiles

Beverly Akerman Wows Quebec City Bibliophiles

This was first published on www.anglostore.com 

On Wednesday 7th December, 2011, author Beverly Akerman (a Montreal anglophone) visited AngloStore to read her from book “The Meaning of Children’, meet the audience and sign copies of her work.

An appreciative crowd of 30 or so gathered in the Quebec City English bookstore at Place Naviles, to hear Beverly read ‘Paternity’, one of the fourteen short stories contained in her first book.

In this particular short story, we see the drama unfold as a father deals with whether or not to go for a paternity test following his wife’s affair.

Is the child his? Does he go through with it? Does his love for his wife and (possible) child override his initial feelings?

Having read for 20 minutes, Beverly was kind enough to answer many questions, some of them quite searching, due to the content of the book. Not once did she shy away from any question posed, answering each one honestly and thoughtfully.

In places, ‘The Meaning of Children’ appears quite dark. This is what makes it eminently readable and leaves you thinking about the topic of each short story.

Beverly, a 50-something mother of three, research scientist and Canadian award winning writer, is currently writing a novel.

Please come back once it’s published and read that one for us too.

The Meaning of Children is published by Exile Editions, is priced at $19.95 and is available from AngloStore, Quebec City.
