Aara Macauley, Artistic Director at Kingston WritersFest, hosts a conversation on care, community and belonging with Governor General’s Award winner Darrel J. McLeod, Danuta Gleed Literary Award winner Zalika Reid-Benta and Booker Prize nominee Elaine Feeney.

 

A Season in Chezgh’un by acclaimed Cree author Darrel J. McLeod is a novel infused with the contradictory triumph and pain of finding conventional success in a world that feels alien.

 

River Mumma , the latest from Zalika Reid-Benta, the Giller-nominated author of Frying Plantain, is a magical realist novel about a millennial Black woman who navigates her quarter-life-crisis while embarking on a quest through the streets of Toronto.

 

How to Build a Boat,  by Ireland’s Elaine Feeney, is the story of how one boy and his mission transforms the lives of his teachers and brings together a community.

 

 

Books are available from our friends at Perfect Books.
