Join Pan-American authors Connie Gault and Sabrina Ramnanan for a riveting discussion about their most recent novels, which delve into two very different family histories and explore the ways in which where we come from can influence where we go. Toronto Star‘s Deborah Dundas hosts and moderates.
This event is made possible by the support of TO2015 IGNITE.
Connie Gault is the author of two collections of short stories, several plays for stage and radio and the novel Euphoria, winner of the Saskatchewan Book Award for Fiction and shortlisted for the High Plains Fiction Award and the Commonwealth Prize for Best Book of Canada and the Caribbean. Gault presents A Beauty, which explores the meaning of home and belonging, the nature of forgiveness and the ways of coming to love.
