Be prepared to increase your reading list by three after this captivating event with literary favourites. Scotiabank Giller‑winner Sean Michaels’ highly anticipated second novel, The Wagers, presents a surreal and spellbinding Montreal, one filled with magical heists and motorcycle chases, where luck can be spent, gambled and stolen. He’s joined by fellow Giller-winner Lynn Coady and her creepy, compelling exploration of poisonous love and dark manipulations Watching You Without Me; as well as bold new voice Hassan Ghedi Santur (The Youth of God), who explores the tensions of modern Islam, sensitively capturing the struggles of a seventeen-year-old Somali Canadian pulled between his faith and his academic passions.
