In Conversation with David Nicholls
International Festival of Authors, Saturday, November 1 at 4:30pm
David Nicholls, the author of the bestselling love story One Day, discusses his Man Booker-longlisted new novel, Us, with Bert Archer. The book offers a clever and authentic meditation on marriage and family today.

Bert Archer is a writer for the National Post, The Globe and Mail, Hazlitt, Toronto Life and Yonge Street Media. He was a full-time book reviewer and literary journalist in Canada and the USA for the better part of a decade. He has written one book and contributed to half a dozen others. Archer also spent this past April visiting the battlefields of Nord-Pas de Calais and Normandy, and July retracing the first war's first steps in the Balkans.

David Nicholls is the author of the bestselling One Day, adapted into a film staring Anne Hathaway and Jim Sturgess. Trained as an actor before making the switch to writing, Nicholls’s previous novels include Starter for Ten, which was adapted into a film starring James McAvoy, and The Understudy. Nicholls presents his latest novel, Us, a witty and authentic meditation on what holds marriages and families together—and what we learn about ourselves when everything falls apart.
