Where you’re from, where you’ve been and the places that move you. For writers, place is more than just geography—it’s inspiration, character, politics and history.
We’re talking to three of Canada’s finest writers, Kamal Al-Solaylee, Camilla Gibb and Steven Heighton, about how they write place in their books, and how the places they’ve lived, traveled and written in have affected them.
In an open and casual conversation, these talented authors will talk about writing retreats, the politics of place, travel, place as character and much more, with audience members invited to participate and ask questions or, if you prefer, to just soak up the literary goodness.
This is a relaxed, salon-style environment, moderated by Open Book and CBC Books columnist Becky Toyne. All are welcome, both readers and writers—whether established or aspiring, this will be a conversation no writer should miss!
This is a FREE event—RSVP at the Facebook event page.
