Dionne Brand, Michael Crummey, Andy McGuire, Anakana Schofield; moderated by Nathan VanderKlippe

We put the spotlight on Canadian literature in this event featuring four of the country’s freshest and most unique voices. Dionne Brand, who grew up in Trinidad, was Toronto’s third Poet Laureate from 2009-12, and writes on gender, race, identity, and the African diaspora; Michael Crummey is an award-winning poet and novelist whose latest, Sweetland, has been garnering critical praise as both a hilarious and heartbreaking epic; Andy McGuire recently published his debut poetry collection, Country Club, “a lyrical wilderness of power, wealth, leisure, and desire”; and Anakana Schofield is an award-winning writer whose debut novel, Malarky, was a sensation, and whose latest book, Martin John, was shortlisted for the 2015 Scotiabank Giller Prize. Moderated by Globe and Mail reporter Nathan VanderKlippe.
