Featuring: Billy-Ray Belcourt, Linden MacIntyre, and Eden Robinson.
Description: Our first event for the season welcomes some of Canada’s best-loved authors who are household names thanks to their iconic storytelling. Billy-Ray Belcourt became the youngest winner of the illustrious Griffin Poetry Prize, and has since captivated readers with his electrifying memoir. Eden Robinson’s Trickster series has become one of the most popular in modern literature, offering a powerful perspective on Indigenous life and Indigenous storytelling. Meanwhile, Giller Prize-winner and former Fifth Estate host Linden MacIntyre writes page turners that speak to human nature. They’ll speak with CTV’s Mi-Jung Lee about their recent works and answer YOUR questions.
This panel is a can’t-miss for readers across Canada interested in Indigenous literature, touching stories on gender and queer identity, and masterful storytelling.
