READING: Esther Freud, Steven Galloway, Sina Queyras and Marcel Theroux
International Festival of Authors, Wednesday, October 29 at 7:30pm
Writers Esther Freud, Steven Galloway, Sina Queyras and Marcel Theroux read from their latest works. Helen Guri hosts.

Esther Freud trained as an actress before writing her first novel, Hideous Kinky, which was shortlisted for the John Llewellyn Rhys Prize and made into a feature film starring Kate Winslet. Her novels include Peerless Flats, Summer at Gaglow, The Wild and Lucky Break. She was named one of Granta’s Best Young British Novelists in 1993. She lives in north London and Suffolk. Freud presents Mr Mac and Me, a vivid portrait of a home front community during the First World War, and of a man who was one of the most brilliant and misunderstood artists of his generation.

Steven Galloway is the author of Finnie Walsh, Ascension and the bestselling novel The Cellist of Sarajevo. He lives with his wife and two young daughters in British Columbia, and teaches creative writing at UBC and SFUH. Galloway presents his latest novel, The Confabulist, a brilliant story about fame and ambition that uses the sudden death of Harry Houdini to weave a magical tale of intrigue, love and illusion.

Helen Guri is the author of Match, published by Coach House Books in 2011 and shortlisted for the Trillium Book Award for Poetry. Her poems and essays have been published widely in Canada, as well as in the US and Australia. She currently works as a freelance editor of fiction and non-fiction and advises on poetry acquisitions for Brick Books.

Sina Queyras is the author of the Lambda Literary Award–winning Lemon Hound, Expressway (shortlisted for the Governor General’s Literary Award) and the novel Autobiography of Childhood (shortlisted for the Amazon.ca First Novel Award). She often writes for the Poetry Foundation and runs the online journal Lemon Hound. She has taught creative writing at Rutgers, Haverford and Concordia University in Montreal, where she now resides. Queyras presents her latest work, a devastating, cheeky and allusive poetry collection called MxT, or ‘Memory x Time,’ which is a formula she posits as a way to measure grief.

Marcel Theroux is the author of four previous novels: A Blow to the Heart, A Stranger in the Earth, The Paperchase (winner of the 2002 Somerset Maugham Award) and Far North, which was shortlisted for the prestigious National Book Award. He lives in London, England. He presents his latest novel, the literary thriller Strange Bodies, a taut, edge-of-your-seat tale that asks whether (one way or another) we can live on after death.

READING: Steven Galloway, Aislinn Hunter, Lee Maracle and Carrie Snyder
International Festival of Authors, Saturday, November 1 at 5pm
Writers Steven Galloway, Aislinn Hunter, Lee Maracle and Carrie Snyder read from their latest works.

Steven Galloway is the author of Finnie Walsh, Ascension and the bestselling novel The Cellist of Sarajevo. He lives with his wife and two young daughters in British Columbia, and teaches creative writing at UBC and SFUH. Galloway presents his latest novel, The Confabulist, a brilliant story about fame and ambition that uses the sudden death of Harry Houdini to weave a magical tale of intrigue, love and illusion.

Aislinn Hunter’s acclaimed collection of stories, What's Left Us, was a finalist for the Danuta Gleed Award and the ReLit Award, and her poetry, Into the Early Hours, was shortlisted for the Dorothy Livesay Poetry Prize and won the Gerald Lampert Memorial Award. Hunter’s novel Stay was a finalist for the Amazon.ca First Novel Award and was recently adapted for film. She presents The World Before Us, her first book of fiction in 12 years. It is a riveting exploration of the repercussions of small acts, the power of affection and the irrepressible vitality of everyday objects and events.

Lee Maracle has been published in anthologies and scholarly journals worldwide, and is the author of a number of critically acclaimed novels and works of non-fiction. She was born in North Vancouver and is a member of the Stó:lō Nation. She is currently an instructor at both the University of Toronto and Banff Centre for the Arts, and has received the Diamond Jubilee Medal for her work promoting writing among Aboriginal youth. Maracle presents her latest novel, Celia’s Song, which chronicles one Native family’s harrowing experiences over several generations, after the brutality, interference and neglect resulting from contact with Europeans.

Poet Jacob McArthur Mooney's last collection, Folk, was shortlisted for the Dylan Thomas Prize and the Trillium Book Award in Poetry. He curates and hosts the bi-weekly Pivot Reading Series in Toronto.

Carrie Snyder is the author of two books of short fiction. Her first, Hair Hat, was shortlisted for the Danuta Gleed Literary Award for short fiction, and her second, The Juliet Stories, was a finalist for the 2012 Governor General's Literary Award. Snyder lives in Waterloo, Ontario and blogs as Obscure CanLit Mama. She presents Girl Runner. Part historical page-turner, part contemporary mystery, it is an engaging and endearing story about family, ambition, athletics and the dedicated pursuit of one’s passions.
