SS Forum: Madeleine Thien, Giller Prize-winning Author, in Conversation

July 9 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

$15 for 2017 Forum Members; $20 for General Public

Madeleine Thien’s stunning new novel, Do Not Say We Have Nothing, catapults its narrator from Vancouver to China and a world of music, the Cultural Revolution, and the lead up to the Tiananmen Square demonstrations.

What does Thien’s novel tell us about history? Currently in the 150th year since Confederation, how has Canada’s national and literary identity shifted over time? Why are stories and history so important?

 

Madeleine Thien, one of Canada’s most exciting writers, joins the Forum for a special Canada 150-themed discussion moderated by Kevin Patterson. The event is co-sponsored by the SSI Public Library and generously supported by the SSI Foundation.

Do Not Say We Have Nothing won the Giller Prize and Governor-General’s Literary Award for Fiction. It was shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize and named a New York Times Critics’ Top Book of 2016.

Make sure not to miss this incredible discussion!
