Masterclass: Connecting Plot and Character with Kenneth Oppel

Web Banner for Kenneth Oppel

Who better to lead us through the balancing act of storytelling that compels us to keep turning pages with characters that come vividly to life than Governor General’s Award-winner Kenneth Oppel?

Kenneth sits down with Ottawa teacher Curtis Perry for a conversation on connecting plot and character using his critically acclaimed new Bloom Trilogy for inspiration.

You can attend via Zoom (please register to receive the link) or by Facebook Live.

Suitable for young writers aged 13+, this event is presented by the Ottawa International Writers Festival's The Republic Of Childhood and OPL's Ottawa Reads YA/Ottawa Bouquine.

We encourage our audiences to read widely, and shop (or borrow) locally.  Please click to see the featured author's books in the library catalogue: Kenneth Oppel. A limited number of signed books are available from our friends at Perfect Books.
