Prairie Scene:
featuring David Carpenter
Connie Gault, Alissa York
and Dianne Warren

Hosted by CBC's Laurie Brown
"Reading Dianne Warren's novel, I was reminded of Carol Shields and the creation of unassuming matter- of-fact characters who are, in truth, generously complicated. The writing is understated,wry, and laconic - as it the place itself could not produce any other kind of story.
— David Bergen

Join Laurie Brown, host of CBC Radio’s The Signal, for an evening of conversation with award-winning authors from the Prairies as they discuss the question of place in Prairie writing.

 

Saskatoon writer David Carpenter’s A Hunter’s Confession , a poignant memoir and winner of the 2010 Saskatchewan Book Award for Book of the Year, explores the author’s relationship with hunting and his refusal ever to hunt again. Dianne Warren’s Cool Water , 2010 Governor General’s Award winner for fiction, is the story of Juliet, a hardscrabble Saskatchewan town and its inhabitants, carving a life from the sand dunes that shape it. Each writer brings a unique perspective to what is certain to be a fascinating discussion.
