International Festival of Authors

This massive literary event

— October 23 to November 2, at Toronto’s Harbourfront — includes writers from all around the world as well as many Canadian writers. I’m scheduled for two events:

Friday November 1, at 8 pm in the Studio Theatre, a reading with four other writers:

George Elliott Clarke

Aminatta Forna

Douglas Glover

Charlotte Gray

Saturday November 2, at 4 pm in the Studio Theatre, a Round Table hosted by Toronto journalist Susan Cole 

The other panelists are Canadian writer Helen Humphreys and American novelist  Meg Wolitzer   Our topic will be Trusting The Muse. Should be an interesting discussion. Maybe we don’t all believe in muses?
