The Vancouver Writers Fest presents
26. Masters of Creative Non-Fiction
CHARLOTTE GRAY, LINDEN MACINTYRE
Moderator: Jerry Wasserman
Two legends of journalism and creative non-fiction delve into their craft and unique strategies for capturing historical events with accuracy, suspense and creative flair.
What happens when an historic event grabs you—and refuses to let go? What are the challenges and rewards of transforming painstaking research into absorbing prose? Hailed as “one of Canada’s best-loved writers of popular history and literary biography,” Charlotte Gray (Murdered Midas) has been showered with awards for precise and richly drawn renderings of historical figures. Giller Prize winner Linden MacIntyre (The Wake) is renowned for his gripping non-fiction and fiction, crafting bestsellers that crackle with suspense and compassion. Undisputed masters of their craft, Gray and MacIntyre delve into their shared background as journalists, their approaches to historical research and their secrets to writing heartstopping, engrossing non-fiction.
Presented in partnership with HarperCollins Canada.
