18. Apples, Birds and Books

Presented by The Vancouver Writers Fest

Helen Humphreys, Kyo Maclear, Merilyn Simonds
Moderator: Aislinn Hunter

Three insightful, contemplative writers talk about blending memoir with an examination of things seemingly ordinary. When Kyo Maclear’s father fell ill, she focused on urban birds as a way to recharge after hours of eldercare. In doing so, she was struck by what happens when you apply the lessons of birding to other aspects of daily life. Helen Humphreys’ research into the history of the apple as one of her closest friends was dying resulted in deep personal insight linked to curiosity about agriculture, settlement and human relationships. Merilyn Simonds’ focus on the book, both as paper page and pixel, became part memoir, part philosophical and historical exploration of the written word. Join us for meditations on creativity and how writers can be changed by what they write about.
