DEDFEST presents THE BURBS
Sat, Aug 9 12:30 am – 2:30 am

It’s summer time and this month DEDfest wants to show it’s humorous side with one of our personal favourite dark comedies celebrating it’s 25th anniversary. We are excited to bring back to the big screen one of Joe Dante’s most underrated films…The BURBS! With an amazing cast headlined by Tom Hanks this is the story of an overstressed suburbanite and his paramilitaric neighbor struggle to prove their paranoid theory that the new family in town is a front for a satanic cult! Co-starring Bruce Dern, Carrie Fisher, and Corey Feldman this is the perfect late night movie on a hot a summer night with a friend and a beer, or two.

With the development of public gathering spaces on the north and south side Stony Plain Road and 152 Street, this creates an oasis for family and friends to gather.

Fri, Sep 5 8:00 pm – 10:00 pm

Join NeWest Press’ newest author Laurence Miall as he launches his first novel BLIND SPOT at the Black Dog on September 5th! Laurence will be joined by another Edmonton writer, 2014 Trade Fiction Book Award winner Thea Bowering, for a fun evening of books and beers.ABOUT THE BOOK: When his parents’ car is hit by a train, Luke, a failed actor, returns to his Edmonton hometown to attend their funeral, wrap up their affairs, and prepare their house to be sold off. But while all others around him grieve, Luke remains detached, striking up a relationship with a woman in a neighbouring house… and stumbling across evidence that his mother may have engaged in a longstanding extramarital affair herself.In Blind Spot, debut novelist Laurence Miall crafts an unforgettable literary antihero, a man disconnected from the pain of those around him, yet blind to his own faults. With his clean, forceful language and his familiarity with the darker corners of the male psyche, Miall emerges as a gripping storyteller in the tradition of Tobias Wolff and Andre Dubus III.ABOUT THE AUTHOR:Laurence Miall is a Montreal-based writer who spent his childhood in England before emigrating to Edmonton at the age of 14. Miall has contributed to The Edmonton Journal and his short stories have been finalists in the Summer Literary Awards contest and Glimmer Train’s Short Story Award for New Writers. His first novel, Blind Spot, will be published by NeWest Press in Fall 2014.
