ROUND TABLE: Forms of Fiction
International Festival of Authors, Sunday, November 2 at 2pm
A novel, a short story collection, an encyclopedic collage—authors talk the myriad forms a story can take. Catherine Bush moderates.

Catherine Bush is the author of four novels: Amazon.ca Best Book Accusation, the Trillium Award-shortlisted Claire’s Head, The Rules of Engagement (which was chosen as a New York Times Notable Book) and Minus Time. Her non-fiction has appeared in the anthology The Heart Does Break and elsewhere. She coordinates the University of Guelph Creative Writing MFA.
