Title:  Mystery and Sci-Fi Talk with Author Joel Sutherland
  • Literacy Events
Description:  Are you a budding author or do you have one in your family? Or are you interested in everything to do with hauntings and mysteries? Then you won’t want to miss author Joel Sutherland’s visit to Uxbridge. The Uxbridge Historical Centre in partnership with Uxbridge Public Libraries is pleased to present award-winning mystery and science fiction writer Joel Sutherland.

Joel A. Sutherland is the Silver Birch and Hackmatack Award-winning author of Be a Writing Superstar, Haunted Canada 4 to 7, and Summer's End. His new series, Haunted, including The House Next Door and Kill Screen, has been praised by Goosebumps author R.L. Stine.

Joel appeared as ‘The Barbarian Librarian’ on the Canadian edition of the hit television show Wipeout, making it all the way to the third round and proving that librarians can be just as tough and crazy as anyone else.

Joel will conduct a lively discussion on the art of creative writing, and talk about his popular and award-winning books, as well as Canada’s haunted history. He has also promised to dig up stories about Uxbridge’s haunted history. All ages are welcome to attend but the presentation will be geared to ages 9 to 12 and there might be some scary content. Please note that children must be accompanied by an adult.
Admission is by donation. Space is limited so please contact the Historical Centre at or 905-852-5854 to reserve your spot.
