Angie Abdou, Fanny Britt, Maia Caron, Kevin Hardcastle
Moderator: Merilyn Simonds
Hop aboard a trans-Canada train, travelling not just through space, but through time as well. First stop is a coal mining town in the Rockies, where Angie Abdou sets her novel about Eli, a boy possessed by the ghost of his great-great grandfather, who’s pulled into history to atone for past wrongs. On the prairie, Maia Caron reimagines the Northwest resistance of 1885 through the Métis women of Batoche, who question Riel’s grip on reality. Rolling on east, Kevin Hardcastle sets his contemporary novel in rural Ontario where a feared cage fighter, his career derailed by injury, slips into a criminal underworld. And Fanny Britt sets her novel in residential Montreal and the contemporary problems of modern marriages. So many Canadas for us to explore, by rail and imagination.
