Presented by The Vancouver Writers Fest
Angie Abdou, Gurjinder Basran, Alison Pick
Moderator: Anne Fleming
Even those who don’t believe in ghosts or ethereal spirits are likely to have had, or heard about an experience, with some kind of otherworldly entity. For writers, creating a mysterious force to meddle in human affairs is irresistible and can constantly be reinvented. Angie Abdou’s young protagonist Eli is almost possessed by his great-greatgrandfather Elijah and is dragged into a past where amends must be made. Alison Pick’s Utopian Jewish settlers are haunted by ghosts and compromised by unbearable secrets. And Gurjinder Basran’s protagonist must grapple with the possibility that her brother is the reincarnation of her deceased uncle.
