McKay is the author of ‘Twenty-Six’, a work of fiction based on the Westray mining disaster in which 26 miners lost their lives. His first book, a collection of short stories, earned him a nomination for the Giller Prize in 1995.

Both writers are also presenting readings of their works in Charlottetown, Fredericton, Moncton and Halifax.
