Carol Bruneau, David Chariandy, Dawn Dumont, Eliza Robertson
Moderator: Anne Fleming

Join us again on a cross-country trip on the Writing Canada train, celebrating Canada’s 150th year. This journey starts on BC’s coast (Salt Spring Island in the 1950’s, to be exact) in Eliza’s Robertson’s atmospheric debut novel Demi-Gods. The we head east, to the Prairies, with Saskatchewan writer Dawn Dumont’s short stories that interconnect the friendship of four Indigenous people over several decades. Our train pulls into Scarborough and the leaning, concrete towers of a housing complex where David Chariandy sets his new novel Brother. Then we roll on to Nova Scotia where Carol Bruneau makes us feel the salt air and overhear the small-town gossip in her short story collection. So many Canadas for us to explore.
