Kate A. Boorman’s new thriller launches at Audreys Saturday.
What We Buried: Told from the split viewpoints of Liv and Jory, Edmonton author Kate A. Boorman’s What We Buried is a psychological thrill ride that deftly explores how memories can lie, how time can bend, and how reconciling the truth can be a matter of life or death. Boorman, who will be Skyping Audreys from overseas for the launch, noted on Twitter when the book world-premiered this week, “I’m pretty proud of this weirdo mind-melt and I’m so grateful to the people who helped bring it into the world. You are my weirdo tribe.”
Kate A. Boorman’s What We Buried is having its launch Saturday.

Details: noon–1:30 p.m. at Audreys Books (10702 Jasper Ave.), no chargeJeremy Dutcher: Jeremy Dutcher is most noted for his album Wolastoqiyik Lintuwakonawa, which won the 2018 Polaris Music Prize. He recorded the album following a research project on old archival recordings of traditional Maliseet songs at the Canadian Museum of Civilization, painstakingly transcribing Wolastoq songs from 1907 wax cylinders. Long days at the archives turned into long nights at the piano, feeling out melodies and phrases, deep in dialogue with the voices of his ancestors. Sister Ray opens the show.Details: 7:30 p.m. at Festival Place (100 Festival Way Sherwood Park), sold outCold War: Paweł Pawlikowski’s passionate love story between two people of different backgrounds and temperaments, who are fatefully mismatched, set against the background of the Cold War in the 1950s in Poland, Berlin, Yugoslavia, and Paris. I saw this a couple weeks back and loved its cinematography, beautiful folk music and simple story. Truly recommended.
