The Vancouver Writers Fest presents
44. Bina, Bunny & The Idiot
MONA AWAD, ELIF BATUMAN, ANAKANA SCHOFIELD
Moderator: Marsha Lederman
Three groundbreaking, hilarious and unapologetically audacious bestselling authors discuss their latest works.
Spend an evening with three whip-smart, hilarious and unapologetically audacious bestselling authors. MFA student Samantha falls down a surreal rabbit hole, captivated by a mysterious cult in Mona Awad’s Bunny, named a best book of Summer 2019 by 15 major publications. Wry and laugh out loud funny, Elif Batuman’s Pulitzer Prize finalist The Idiot was praised as “addictive” by Miranda July. Giller Prizeshortlisted Anakana Schofield balances black comedy and compassion in Bina, a tour de force beloved by literary powerhouses including Rachel Cusk and Eden Robinson. Moderated by The Globe & Mail’s Marsha Lederman, these women incisively discuss the craft of comedy and writing independent, self-assured protagonists.
Elif Batuman is presented thanks to the donors of the Hal Wake Legacy Fund.
