ROUND TABLE: Women & War
International Festival of Authors, Friday, October 31 at 7:30pm
Four talented authors discuss writing about WWI from a female perspective. Charlotte Gray will moderate.

Charlotte Gray is one of Canada’s preeminent biographers and historians. She is the recipient of many awards and is a Member of the Order of Canada. Gray presents her latest work of non-fiction, The Massey Murder: A Maid, Her Master and the Trial that Shocked a Country, which was shortlisted for the RBC Taylor Prize. The book tells the sensational true story of Carrie Davies, the maid who shot a member of one of Canada’s wealthiest families in 1915.

Anna Hope studied English at Oxford, attended the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts and then received an MA in creative writing at Birkbeck. She lives in London. Hope presents her debut novel, Wake, which tells the story of three very different women who try to find ways to live again after devastating losses endured during WWI.

Frances Itani is the author of 16 books, including Deafening, which won a Commonwealth Writers’ Prize and was shortlisted for the International IMPAC Dublin Literary Award. She is a three-time winner of the CBC Literary Award and is a Member of the Order of Canada. Itani presents her 2014 Scotiabank Giller Prize longlisted novel, Tell, an extraordinary tour-de-force about secrets withheld and secrets revealed in the aftermath of the First Great War.

Kate Pullinger is the author of 10 novels, including The Mistress of Nothing, which won the Governor General’s Literary Award for Fiction. Her prize-winning digital fiction projects Inanimate Alice and Flight Paths: A Networked Novel have reached audiences around the world. Born in Cranbrook, BC, she is currently Professor of Creative Writing and Digital Media at Bath Spa University. Pullinger presents Landing Gear, a highly imaginative story of colliding worlds and extraordinary connections. Inspired by real-life accounts of airplane stowaways, the novel chronicles the complex texture of modern life.

Johanna Skibsrud is the award-winning author of two collections of poetry and one short story collection, This Will Be Difficult to Explain and Other Stories. Her debut novel, The Sentimentalists, was awarded the 2010 Scotiabank Giller Prize. Skibsrud presents her latest novel, Quartet for the End of Time. Set in 1932, it is a profound mediation on human nature that follows embittered WWI veterans who march on Washington to demand their wartime bonus.
