The Vancouver Writers Fest presents
50. Reinventing the Novel
SARA PETERS, ANAKANA SCHOFIELD, BINDU SURES
Moderator: John Freeman
Rules were made to be broken in this conversation between visionary authors, each dismantling the conventional novel, and delighting audiences with fiction unlike anything you've seen before.
Rules were made to be broken in this conversation between visionary authors, each dismantling the conventional novel. Giller Prize shortlisted writer Anakana Schofield’s new book, Bina, is a “novel in warnings” that captures the rage and wit of an unforgettable ordinary-extraordinary woman. In 26 Knots, Bindu Suresh tells a lush, interlocking love story in twenty-six startling vignettes. Employing innovative forms to capture both the fear and transcendence of the women who live in The Town, Sara Peters’ razor-sharp interrogation of gendered violence, I Become a Delight to My Enemies, deftly oscillates between poetry, prose and the profound. Prepare to be delighted by storytelling as you’ve never seen it before.
Presented in collaboration with The Writers Studio at SFU.
