Description

Imagination and Identity: How Stories Form Who We Are

Guest Speaker: Yann Martel, Author

7PM, Louis' Loft, Saskatoon

Stories are not just entertainment, they are something to indulge in after the day's work is done. Martel will discuss two examples of how stories are foundational to who we are.

Yann Martel is the author of the short story collection The Facts Behind the Helsinki Roccamatios (winner of the Journey Prize), and of the novels Self, Beatrice & Virgil, Life of Pi (for which he won the 2002 Man Booker Prize), and his latest, The High Mountains of Portugal. He also ran a guerilla book club with Stephen Harper, sending the former prime minister of Canada a book every two weeks for four years. The letters that accompanied the books were published as 101 Letters to a Prime Minister.
