Presented by The Vancouver Writers Fest

Jenny Erpenbeck, Barbara Gowdy, Nicola Lagioia, Suzette Mayr, Linda Spalding, Ruth Ware

Open the thirtieth Vancouver Writers Fest in grand style as six writers read from their new works and take us around the world. Presenting her first novel in 10 years, Canada’s Barbara Gowdy intrigues us with a psyche in turmoil. Linda Spalding propels us by wagon and boat through the American south in 1855. Germany’s Jenny Erpenbeck puts faces to some of the refugees trying to find a new life in Germany. Italy’s Nicola Lagioia gives us family-style moral and political corruption. Canada’s Suzette Mayr lampoons academic politics and passions. And England’s Ruth Ware will scare your socks off with her psychological thriller. Whether these authors are familiar or new to you, you’re going to love this evening’s trip around the world in their company.
