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.

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.
