Vancouver Writers Fest

48. Something to Talk About

The Vancouver Writers Fest presents


Moderator: Jael Richardson

All parents worry for their children’s wellbeing. This becomes all the more complex when kids experience prejudice. How can parents and educators create a sense of identity that balances the hard truths of history with the sense of possibility and equality that each child should lead their lives with? David Chariandy explores these questions in an intimate, beautiful book written for this thirteen-year-old daughter, I’ve Been Meaning to Tell You. He joins a conversation with Randy Boyagoda, whose op-ed in The Globe and Mail about this topic also asks about the implications of class and inequality within this context.  Author, broadcaster and Director of The Festival of Literary Diversity, Jael Richardson, joins them on stage for an important and enlightening conversation.

Also suitable for grades 8-12.
