Description

Giller prize-winning author Linden MacIntyre returns to Wordfest with his just-released novel The Only Café, a psychological thriller about a son trying to solve the mystery of his father’s death – before it’s too late. This hour-long conversation with MacIntyre, hosted by Jennifer Keene from the CBC Calgary EyeOpener, includes breakfast treats by Sidewalk Citizen Bakery and beverages from Phil & Sebastian Coffee Roasters.

Linden MacIntyre

Linden MacIntyre is the author of the bestselling The Long Stretch and The Bishop’s Man, which won the Scotiabank Giller Prize. He spent 24 years as the co-host of the fifth estate and is a distinguished broadcast journalist who has won 10 Gemini awards for his work.

The Only Café

Pierre Cormier had secrets. He was especially silent about what had happened to him in Lebanon, the country he fled during civil war to come to Canada as a refugee. After he’s officially declared dead years after a mysterious explosion, his son Cyril respects his will by going to The Only Café, a bar in Toronto’s east end, and meeting the one person on his father’s guest list: Ari. Ari knew Cyril’s father in the ’80s, and soon Cyril’s personal journey is entangled in a larger news story beginning with the massacre at the Sabra and Shantila camps in Lebabnon during September 1982.
