We’re very excited to be welcoming Fort Erie author Brent Jones this November to read from his new novel, Fender. Brent will be speaking about his new career as a writer, and how he made the jump from a 9 to 5 job to follow his dreams. Brent gave up his career as a social media manager to pursue creative writing full time, and has been making waves in the Niagara literary scene ever since. This is his second published novel, and we can’t wait to see what he does next!

‘Nothing could have prepared Brennan Glover for the car crash that claimed the lives of his wife and six-year-old daughter. Stricken with grief, the only things that get him through each day are breaking his sobriety and clinging to Fender—the family dog and the sole survivor of the crash.
Desperate to distance Brennan from tragedy, his two closest friends take him on the cross-country road trip they had always talked about. But what begins as an effort to mend his broken heart ends up unraveling a secret that changes everything he thought he knew about his family. Can a journey of six thousand miles lead Brennan to acceptance and new beginnings?
From finding the good in an often cruel world to learning to say goodbye to those we love most, this sophomore release from author Brent Jones is sure to leave readers longing for home, wherever that may be.’
