ROUND TABLE: October 1970
International Festival of Authors, Saturday, November 1 at 7:30pm
Three books that explore the October Crisis and the effects of the FLQ are discussed by their Canadian authors. Marc Côté hosts and moderates.

Marc Côté is the publisher of Cormorant Books, a literary house noted for the discovery and development of Canadian writing talent and the publishing of Québécois fiction translated into English. He has won the Libris Award for Editor of the Year twice. Cormorant has won the Libris Award for Small Press three times in their eight nominations over the past 12 years. At Cormorant, Marc has acquired and edited many award-nominated books.

Catherine Gildiner's childhood memoir Too Close to the Falls was a New York Times and Globe and Mail bestseller. The sequel, After the Falls, was also a bestseller, and her novel, Seduction, was published to international acclaim. She presents the third and final volume of her memoir series, Coming Ashore. Picking up her story in the late ’60s at age 21, Gildiner determinedly blazes her own trail through all the passion and uncertainty that comes with the cusp of adulthood.

John McFetridge is the author of Dirty Sweet, Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere and Swap. He became fascinated with crime while attending a murder trial at age 12 with his police officer brother. McFetridge has also co-written a short story collection, Below the Line, and wrote for the CBS/CTV television series The Bridge. He lives in Toronto with his family. He presents Black Rock, an artfully told police procedural set in Montreal in 1970. Set against actual historical events, it is both a compelling page-turner and an accomplished novel.

Claire Holden Rothman is the author of two story collections and a bestselling novel, The Heart Specialist, longlisted for the 2009 Scotiabank Giller Prize and published in six countries. Her translation of Canada’s first novel, L’influence d’un livre (The Influence of a Book) by Philippe-Ignace François Aubert de Gaspé, won the John Glassco Translation Prize. She lives in Montreal with playwright Arthur Holden. Rothman presents her 2014 Scotiabank Giller Prize longlisted novel, My October, a masterful tale of a modern family torn apart by the power of language and the weight of history.
