Join us in conversation with Canadian Author Marsha Forchuk Skrypuch. Marsha will read from her most recent novel, Winterkill, and an excerpt from Stolen Girl/Stolen Child, the first of her six WWII Ukraine novels.
Introduction by Sonia Bodnar, book blogger and Kontakt Ukr. TV book review reporter
Bio: Marsha Fotchuk Skrypuch is the author of 20+ books for young people, yet she didn’t read until age 9. She now considers dyslexia to be a gift. Her scrupulously researched historical fiction and narrative non-fiction focuses on refugees and war from a young person’s perspective. Her books have won many honors, but her favorites are readers’ choice awards, of which she’s won many. Marsha has a Master of Library Science degree and worked as a librarian for the federal government before she began writing books. She considers herself a librarian-detective (and also a princess, but that’s another story).
Her best-known book is Making Bombs for Hitler. Her newest is Winterkill. Sonia Bodnar is a Toronto-based book blogger and a 4th-year student of International Relations and Regional Studies bachelor program. Sonia graduated George Brown College with Human Resources diploma with honours in 2022.
Reading is Sonia’s biggest passion. Her favourite genres are romance, thrillers, and nonfiction about psychology and neuroscience. You can read her regular posts, book reviews and recommendations on her Instagram book blog @millionstories.bookclub.
