ROUND TABLE: Time for Crime
International Festival of Authors, Sunday, October 26 at 4pm
Three crime novelists discuss how they create suspense and develop their characters in this thrilling genre. James Grainger hosts and moderates.

James Grainger is the author of The Long Slide, which won the ReLit Award for short fiction. His reviews and articles have appeared in the Toronto Star, Quill & Quire, The Globe and Mail, Elle Canada, Men's Fashion, Sharp and Rue Morgue. His debut novel, Harmless, will be published in May by McClelland & Stewart.

John McFetridge is the author of Dirty Sweet, Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere and Swap. He became fascinated with crime while attending a murder trial at age 12 with his police officer brother. McFetridge has also co-written a short story collection, Below the Line, and wrote for the CBS/CTV television series The Bridge. He lives in Toronto with his family. He presents Black Rock, an artfully told police procedural set in Montreal in 1970. Set against actual historical events, it is both a compelling page-turner and an accomplished novel.

Peter Robinson is the author of the hugely successful Inspector Banks series, two short story collections and three standalone novels, the most recent of which, the bestselling Before the Poison, won the Arthur Ellis Award in Canada, Sweden's Golden Crowbar Award and the 2013 Dilys Award. Robinson's novels have been published in translation worldwide, and several Inspector Banks novels have been adapted for television. He presents the 22nd book in the DCI Banks series, Abattoir Blues, which sees Banks heading an investigation into the bizarre disappearance of two local boys.

Michael Robotham started his career as a journalist, but then became a ghostwriter, writing many bestselling autobiographies in collaboration with politicians, pop stars, psychologists and adventurers. His novels have been translated into 23 languages. He is a two-time winner of the Ned Kelly Award for Australia’s Crime Novel of the Year and has twice been shortlisted for the UK Crime Writers Association Steel Dagger and once for the CWA’s acclaimed Gold Dagger award. Robotham presents Life or Death, the heart-stopping story of one man’s escape from prison the day before he’s due to be released.

ROUND TABLE: October 1970
International Festival of Authors, Saturday, November 1 at 7:30pm
Three books that explore the October Crisis and the effects of the FLQ are discussed by their Canadian authors. Marc Côté hosts and moderates.

Marc Côté is the publisher of Cormorant Books, a literary house noted for the discovery and development of Canadian writing talent and the publishing of Québécois fiction translated into English. He has won the Libris Award for Editor of the Year twice. Cormorant has won the Libris Award for Small Press three times in their eight nominations over the past 12 years. At Cormorant, Marc has acquired and edited many award-nominated books.

Catherine Gildiner's childhood memoir Too Close to the Falls was a New York Times and Globe and Mail bestseller. The sequel, After the Falls, was also a bestseller, and her novel, Seduction, was published to international acclaim. She presents the third and final volume of her memoir series, Coming Ashore. Picking up her story in the late ’60s at age 21, Gildiner determinedly blazes her own trail through all the passion and uncertainty that comes with the cusp of adulthood.

John McFetridge is the author of Dirty Sweet, Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere and Swap. He became fascinated with crime while attending a murder trial at age 12 with his police officer brother. McFetridge has also co-written a short story collection, Below the Line, and wrote for the CBS/CTV television series The Bridge. He lives in Toronto with his family. He presents Black Rock, an artfully told police procedural set in Montreal in 1970. Set against actual historical events, it is both a compelling page-turner and an accomplished novel.

Claire Holden Rothman is the author of two story collections and a bestselling novel, The Heart Specialist, longlisted for the 2009 Scotiabank Giller Prize and published in six countries. Her translation of Canada’s first novel, L’influence d’un livre (The Influence of a Book) by Philippe-Ignace François Aubert de Gaspé, won the John Glassco Translation Prize. She lives in Montreal with playwright Arthur Holden. Rothman presents her 2014 Scotiabank Giller Prize longlisted novel, My October, a masterful tale of a modern family torn apart by the power of language and the weight of history.
