The Vancouver Writers Fest presents
12. International Showcase
TASH AW, CHIGOZIE OBIOMA, JOANNE RAMOS
Moderator: Aislinn Hunter
Acclaimed international authors delve into global issues of immigration, poverty and classism, sharing three pertinent modern masterpieces.
Settle in for three stunning odysseys from lauded international voices. In Joanne Ramos’ debut novel, The Farm, Jane agrees to surrogacy at a luxury ‘resort’ to support her immigrant family outside its walls. It’s a must-read of 2019, celebrated by book royalty from Oprah to Gary Shteyngart. Booker long-listed Tash Aw bares the brutality of western-driven poverty in Malaysia in We, The Survivors. And Booker finalist Chigozie Obioma’s An Orchestra of Minorities was hailed by The Boston Globe as “a historical treasure” for its depiction of love in the face of class structures. Literature that challenges, and literature that heals: it doesn’t get better than this.
