53. Freeman's New Voices

Presented by The Vancouver Writers Fest

Heather O'Neill, Diego Enrique Osorno
Moderator: John Freeman

When John Freeman first came to the Festival with his book of interviews with literary figures, he made such an impression that we’ve invited him back every year since. Formerly the editor of Granta Magazine, he now edits a twice-yearly literary anthology called, naturally, Freeman’s. The new edition focuses on The Future of New Writing and features 25 poets, essayists, novelists and short story writers who are shaping the literary conversation. Two-time Scotiabank Giller Prize nominee Heather O’Neill isn’t a new voice in Canada, but her work is only now being discovered beyond our borders. Diego Enrique Osorno is one of Mexico’s foremost journalists and filmmakers. His latest book is a biography of the reclusive and powerful Carlos Slim. Join Freeman as he talks with two authors about stepping onto the world stage.
