International Festival of Authors, Saturday, October 25 at 4pm
Writers John Boyne, Peter Robinson, Matthew Thomas and Tim Winton read from their latest works. Grace O’Connell hosts.

John Boyne is the author of nine novels for adults and four for younger readers. His novel The Boy in the Striped Pajamas sold more than six million copies worldwide and was made into a Miramax feature film. His books have been published in more than 45 languages. Boyne presents his latest novel for young readers, Stay Where You Are and Then Leave, a moving and uplifting WWI story about a young boy, his father and a secret.

Grace O'Connell holds an MFA in creative writing. Her work has appeared in various publications, including The Walrus, Taddle Creek, Quill & Quire and EYE Weekly. She has taught creative writing at George Brown College and now works as a freelance writer and editor in Toronto. She is the author of the national bestseller Magnified World.

Peter Robinson is the author of the hugely successful Inspector Banks series, two short story collections and three standalone novels, the most recent of which, the bestselling Before the Poison, won the Arthur Ellis Award in Canada, Sweden's Golden Crowbar Award and the 2013 Dilys Award. Robinson's novels have been published in translation worldwide, and several Inspector Banks novels have been adapted for television. He presents the 22nd book in the DCI Banks series, Abattoir Blues, which sees Banks heading an investigation into the bizarre disappearance of two local boys.

Matthew Thomas was born in the Bronx and grew up in Queens. A graduate of the University of Chicago, he has an MA from the Writing Seminars at Johns Hopkins University and an MFA from the University of California, Irvine, where he received the Graduate Essay Award. Thomas presents his riveting debut novel, We Are Not Ourselves, which charts the story of the American Century through one Irish-American family, particularly the promise of domestic bliss and economic prosperity that captured hearts and minds after WWII.

Tim Winton is the bestselling author of Cloudstreet, The Riders and Dirt Music, among many other books. He has won the Miles Franklin Award four times and has twice been shortlisted for the Booker Prize. Winton presents Eyrie, a thrilling and vertigo-inducing morality tale about a man struggling to accomplish good in a fallen world.
