Kawartha Lakes Stories, volume 3: Autumn

The third volume of Kawartha Lakes Stories takes readers through the season of rot and ruin. It’s a season of change, when nature lets go, a season of abundance, when nature blankets her secrets in bold colours.

An all new anthology of stories set in Kawartha Lakes during the most colourful season. This anthology takes readers on a journey of unexpected and innovative views of the city of Kawartha Lakes using a mix of genres, ranging from sweet romance and contemporary fairy tale to soft horror and edgy humour. With settings including Bobcaygeon, Burnt River, Sturgeon Lake, and various locations between, Kawartha Lakes Stories are at once startling and familiar, as local writers explore some of our everyday places through a variety of voices and styles.
