The Cook’s Temptation: Book Launch at Sheridan
The Sheridan Elder Research Centre (SERC) is pleased to present a special event featuring the launch of The Cook’s Temptation, the first novel by Joyce Wayne, a Sheridan professor.
When: Wednesday, February 12, 2 – 3:30 pm
Where: S235 (SCAET Auditorium), Trafalgar Road Campus
What: Following a brief reading from the novel, Joyce will be interviewed by Pat Spadafora, SERC Director, about writing, creativity, and the possibilities that open to us as we age.
Although officially retired from Sheridan, Joyce continues to teach Journalism at Sheridan on a part-time basis. She is also an award-winning literary journalist, a former editor at Quill & Quire and editorial director at McClelland & Stewart Publishers. Recently, she published short fiction in TOK:6: Writing the New Toronto and was long-listed for the Exile Short Fiction Award. Joyce considers herself a literary late bloomer; she returned to fiction after a lengthy hiatus and is following her dream of writing the novels that she has imagined for years.
