Announcing the 2022 STARFest Fall Festival Line-up!
STARFest (St. Albert Readers Festival) returns for its 12th season with a star-studded slate of authors over three weeks from October 13 to 28, and we’re excited to return to an in-person festival. The 2022 lineup features prizewinning authors and bestselling, powerful books by authors you know and love, and authors you’ll always remember discovering at STARFest. Save these dates now, and watch for tickets to go on sale on August 15.
We are thrilled to kick off the 2022 STARFest season with a special online event with Nita Prose, bestselling author of The Maid.
Nita Prose is the author of The Maid, one of the most anticipated books of 2022 and an instant New York Times and Canadian bestseller.
This charming mystery stars twenty-five-year-old Molly Gray, who struggles with social skills and misreads the intentions of others. Molly’s unique character and obsessive love of cleaning make her an ideal fit for work as a hotel maid. But Molly’s orderly life is upended the day she enters the suite of the infamous and wealthy Charles Black, only to find Mr. Black dead in his bed. Before she knows what’s happening, Molly’s unusual demeanour has the police targeting her as their lead suspect.
The New York Times calls The Maid “An endearing debut … The reader comes to understand Molly’s worldview, and to sympathize with her longing to be accepted – a quest that gives The Maid real emotional heft.”
Nita Prose is a long-time editor at Simon & Schuster Publishing, serving many bestselling authors and their books. She lives in Toronto.
