Toronto Lit Up: Barbara Gowdy

Wednesday, April 26, 2017 - 6:30 PM
Boxcar Social, Harbourfront Centre
Book Launch
Participants: Barbara Gowdy

IFOA and HarperCollins invite you to the release of Little Sister by award-winning author Barbara Gowdy as part of the Toronto Lit Up book launch series. Join us at Boxcar Social at Harbourfront Centre and celebrate the new work of an acclaimed author.

littlesisterLike The White Bone, Gowdy’s international bestseller, Little Sister is a fictional tour de force. As the author explores the limits of the human mind, the result is an impassioned tale of one woman’s determination to help a woman she has never met, and to come to terms with a death for which she has always felt responsible.

“I had to admire Gowdy’s elegant structure…. Louise’s descriptions of her feelings for Abel are carefully constructed and, at times, flat-out beautiful…. [Gowdy] has found a perfect vehicle for her peculiar talents.” —The new York Times Book Review
