The Vancouver Writers Fest presents
14. CanLit Fiction Showcase
MICHAEL CHRISTIE, SARAH HENSTRA, RICHARD VAN CAMP
Moderator: Zsuzsi Gartner
Explore expansive fiction worlds as three Canadian masters, emerging and established, tease out the innumerable ways we are influenced by place and create community.
What defines our communities? Is it history or humour? Politics or propaganda? In Michael Christie’s dystopian epic, Greenwood, scientist Jacinda Greenwood uncovers a personal connection to one of the world’s last remaining forests. Sarah Henstra plunges readers into divisive campus politics, as sophomore Karen searches for belonging while navigating tense conflicts between frat boys and radical feminists in her Governor General’s Award-winning The Red Word. Richard Van Camp’s latest collection of stories, Moccasin Square Gardens, comically illuminates life in the Denendeh, the land of the people north of the sixtieth parallel. In the face of social upheaval, these authors explore the innumerable ways we shape and are shaped by the places we inhabit.
