An Evening with Shilpi Somaya Gowda
Monday Oct 26 2015 7:00 pm, Winnipeg, Grant Park in the Atrium
In conversation with Joanne Kelly and signing her latest novel The Golden Son. Co-presented by the Winnipeg International Writers Festival as part of McNally Robinson's collaborative Fall Literary Series.
Host Joanne Kelly is a broadcast journalism instructor. She runs a book club at McNally Robinson and talks books every second Sunday on CBC Radio.
The Sunday Brunch is a hallmark of the Festival, one of the first events to sell out, and for very good reason: mimosas, croissants and coffee, not to mention readings by six fine authors whose work you may or may not have encountered, but who will leave you wanting more. Come with a friend, or make a new one, and raise a glass of bubbly to the exceptional lineup of literati set to take the stage.
Appearing with Nino Ricci, Lauren Groff, Steven Hayward, Sigal Samuel & Neil Smith
Doors open at 10:30 am.
Four authors whose fiction is firmly fixed in place and culture talk about depicting the soul of a country while also exploring universal concerns. Though none of their stories could take place in any other country, these portraits of Haiti, Vietnam, India and Jamaica are no travelogues. Rooted in the personal and encompassing the political, they take you into the backstreets, the slums, the rural Indian countryside and the storm of shellfire.
Appearing with Marlon James, Roxane Gay & Viet Thanh Nguyen
Host: Jared Bland
