Peggy Hogan, award winner in the 34th Atlantic Writing Competition, will be selling and signing copies of her book, For a Song (Double Dragon Publishing), on Saturday, February 7th (storm date is February 14th), 2:00 pm at the Confederation Centre Public Library, in Charlottetown.
For a Song is about Blat – an unfortunate name for a singer – who stumbles upon an entire race of people that needs saving. He recruits a brilliant, manic-depressive scientist to help him. Their enemy is the sinister Brothers of the Watch whose leader wants what every evildoer wants: power over everyone and everything, and, through mind control, he has the wherewithal to accomplish this. Blat craves the love of a woman, who is a good friend and ignorant of his feelings. Whether he admits it or not, he will go to any length to impress her – even if he dies trying. To Blat’s great advantage, the leader of the Brothers knows nothing of this kind of power.
