Marsha Lederman, Western Arts Correspondent for The Globe & Mail, has a talent for bringing out revealing truths behind remarkable work. Now, Lederman interviews three of the Festival’s most buzzed about authors. Aleksandar Hemon’s divided memoirs My Parents/This Does Not Belong to You provide a raw glimpse into how cultural touchstones, family anxieties and inheritances are shaped by upheaval and immigration. Acclaimed political pundit David Moscrop (Too Dumb for Democracy) discusses how democracy both succeeded and failed across our country in the recent federal election—and what we hope we have for our future. Jenny Heijun Wills speaks to her memoir, Older Sister. Not Necessarily Related., and overcoming trauma and cultural divides to reconnect with her biological family.
