Don’t miss this timely conversation between City of Ottawa Book Award winner Kagiso Lesego Molope and two-time Scotiabank Giller Prize winner Esi Edguyan. Her latest, Out of the Sun: On Art, Race, and the Future , is an insightful exploration and moving meditation on identity, art, and belonging from one of the most celebrated writers of the last decade.

 

What happens when we begin to consider stories at the margins, when we grant them centrality? How does that complicate our certainties about who we are, as individuals, as nations, as human beings? Through the lens of visual art, literature, film, and the author’s lived experience, Out of the Sun examines Black histories in art, offering new perspectives to challenge us.

 

Books are available from our friends at Perfect Books.

 

The Ottawa International Writers Festival is supported by generous individuals like you. Please consider subscribing to our newsletter and making a donation to support our programming and children’s literacy initiatives.

 

Presented in Partnership with the Ottawa Public Library.
