Engen Books is proud to introduce our third author for 2017’s Fantasy from the Rock, Alicia Niemann!
Born in Victoria, BC, Alicia Niemann spent the majority of her twenties wandering Atlantic Canada, from Caraquet to Cape Breton. She studies representations of language and multilingualism in fairy tales and other fiction and, after much longer than was really necessary, graduated from Dalhousie University with an honours in European Studies, before going on to complete her masters in World Literature at the University of Ottawa last year. She has published academic work in Dalhousie’s European Studies journal The Lyre and the University of Ottawa’s journal of world literature, Confetti. Currently she works as a language teacher in Argentina.
Niemann brings her short story Snow White and Rose Red to the Fantasy from the Rock collection, which will be launching at the St. John’s Arts and Culture Center, April 27 2017 6 – 8PM, leading into Sci-Fi on the Rock 11 starting the next day!
