READING: Dionne Brand, Frances Itani, Kathryn Kuitenbrouwer and Kate Pullinger
International Festival of Authors, Saturday, November 1 at 3pm
Writers Dionne Brand, Frances Itani, Kathryn Kuitenbrouwer and Kate Pullinger read from their latest works. Ania Szado hosts.

Dionne Brand is a poet and novelist and was Toronto’s third Poet Laureate from 2009–2012. Her most recent book of poetry, Ossuaries, won the Griffin Poetry Prize, and her literary honours include the Governor General’s Literary Award, the Trillium Book Award and the 2006 Harbourfront Festival Prize for her contribution to the world of books and writing. She presents her latest novel, Love Enough, about the love between lovers, friends and for the places we live in. It is a profoundly modern work that speaks to the most fundamental questions of how we live now.

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.

Kathryn Kuitenbrouwer is the author of the novels Perfecting and The Nettle Spinner, as well as the story collection Way Up, which won the Danuta Gleed Literary Award. She is also an award-winning instructor with the University of Toronto’s School of Continuing Studies. Her short fiction has been published in Granta, The Walrus, Numéro Cinq, Joyland and Storyville. Kuitenbrouwer presents All the Broken Things, a spellbinding novel of exceptional heart and imagination about the ties that bind us to each other.

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.

In 2014, CBC called Ania Szado one of "Ten Canadian Women You Need to Read." Her short fiction has been nominated for the Journey Prize and the National Magazine Awards, and her bestselling novel Studio Saint-Ex has received international acclaim. Szado's debut novel, Beginning of Was, was regionally shortlisted for the Commonwealth Writers' Prize.

ROUND TABLE: How We Live Now
International Festival of Authors, Saturday, November 1 at 2pm
The past and the present. Fiction and fact. The told and the untold. All have ways of merging and blending, of blurring the landscapes of our modern Canadian life. From the Battle of the Somme to the reflections of an elderly athlete, Canadian storytellers remind us how we’re shaped not only by our contemporary lives, but by the past of our country. Hosted and moderated by Brian Francis.

Dionne Brand is a poet and novelist and was Toronto’s third Poet Laureate from 2009–2012. Her most recent book of poetry, Ossuaries, won the Griffin Poetry Prize, and her literary honours include the Governor General’s Literary Award, the Trillium Book Award and the 2006 Harbourfront Festival Prize for her contribution to the world of books and writing. She presents her latest novel, Love Enough, about the love between lovers, friends and for the places we live in. It is a profoundly modern work that speaks to the most fundamental questions of how we live now.

Brian Francis’ most recent novel, Natural Order, was selected by the Toronto Star, Kobo and Georgia Straight as a Best Book of 2011. His first novel, Fruit, was a 2009 Canada Reads finalist.

Joseph Kertes was born in Hungary, but escaped with his family to Canada after the revolution of 1956. His first novel, Winter Tulips, won the Stephen Leacock Award for Humour. His third novel, Gratitude, won a Canadian Jewish Book Award and the U.S. National Jewish Book Award for Fiction. Kertes founded Humber College’s distinguished creative writing and comedy programmes, and is currently the dean of creative and performing arts. He presents The Afterlife of Stars. An intimate and compelling novel of revolution and family, it is about fathers and sons and the tearing down of idols.

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.

Michael Winter is the author of numerous acclaimed novels, including The Architects are Here, which was longlisted for the Scotiabank Giller Prize, and The Death of Donna Whalen, which was nominated for the Rogers Writers' Trust Fiction Prize and the Commonwealth Writers' Prize. He is also the recipient of the Writers' Trust Notable Author Award. Winter presents his non-fiction debut, Into the Blizzard: Walking the Fields of the Newfoundland Dead, a uniquely gripping account of the Royal Newfoundland Regiment who were all but annihilated 100 years ago during the Battle of the Somme in World War I.
