We welcome two remarkable authors from Newfoundland for a conversation on the ways families come together and are torn apart and how our love for each other can be both liberating and confining.

 

An unflinching, unchronological coming-of-age story told through vivid and mesmerizing vignettes, Quiet Time by Katherine Alexandra Harvey is Grace’s story of resilience, bravery, and redemption, as she fights for her voice in a world attempting to silence it.

 

This Is How We Love , the latest novel from Commonwealth Writers’ Prize and CBC’s Canada Reads winner Lisa Moore, asks: What makes a family? How does it shape us? And can we ever really choose who we love? Here, across families and generations, are stories of mothers, fathers, sisters, and brothers; of children cared for, neglected, lost, and re-found; of selfless generosity and reluctant debt.

 

PLEASE NOTE: For the safety and comfort of all patrons, masks are required to attend in person.  

 

Most people coming by car park for free at the Supreme Court of Canada on Wellington St.

 

Ticket holders unable to attend in person can request access to the livestream. Livestream links will be sent about an hour prior and will remain active for 48 hours. Please email leslie@writersfestival.org to request a link.

 

 

Books are available from our friends at Perfect Books.
