Event description

Description

ESI EDUGYAN, RAWI HAGE, ALIX HAWLEY

Moderator: Kathryn Gretsinger

Info: 8:00pm, WATERFRONT THEATRE

From shops operating out of half-shelled buildings to remnants of slave-trading blocks in city centres: some marks of our volatile history are visible. Others are hidden but no less insidious. Historical events make for some of the most compelling novels from modern writers, helping us better understand the complex lives of our forebears. Esi Edugyan (Washington Black), Rawi Hage (Beirut Hellfire Society) and Alix Hawley (My Name Is a Knife) share why they interpret history through their fiction and how the power of art can help us reassess our modern age. Sharing tales of the Deep South pre-abolition, the Lebanese Civil War, and the American frontier where Indigenous and white communities clash, these authors will spellbind and inform.
