This is an online event

Read and discuss the novel Always Brave, Sometimes Kind with the author Katie Bickell! Pick up a copy of her book from the library, and the discussion will be online.

Katie Bickell's debut novel, Always Brave, Sometimes Kind, captures a network of friends, caregivers, in-laws, and near misses, with each character's life coming into greater focus as we learn more about the people around them. Tracing alliances and betrayals from different perspectives over decades, Bickell writes an ode to home and community that is both warm and gritty, well-defined and utterly complicated.

Katie Bickell is the author of Always Brave, Sometimes Kind, a novel told in short stories, published September 2020. Katie is also the recipient of the 2014 Howard O’Hagan Short Story Award, the 2015 Alberta Views Fiction Contest, the 2017 WGA Emerging Writer Award, and two Alberta Foundation of the Arts Individual Artists Grants. She lives in Sherwood Park, Alberta. Read more at
