Stories about Storytellers
with Douglas Gibson

"Here is my prize read for people who are interested in books, writers, Canada, life, and all that kind of thing.
— Alice Munro
Douglas Gibson

The Writers Festival is honoured to be presenting Douglas Gibson’s one-man show, which encapsulates a lifetime of encounters with this country’s finest writers.

 

Prepare to meet Alice Munro, Pierre Trudeau, Robertson Davies, Alistair MacLeod, Mavis Gallant, Hugh MacLennan, Peter C. Newman, Brian Mulroney, Morley Callaghan, Paul Martin, James Houston, Peter Gzowski, W.O.Mitchell and many more through the eyes of their friend and editor, Douglas Gibson.

 

“I’ll kill him!” said Mavis Gallant. Pierre Trudeau almost did, leading him (“Run!”) into a whizzing stream of traffic that almost crushed both of them. Alistair MacLeod accused him of a “home invasion” to grab the manuscript of No Great Mischief. On the other hand, Alice Munro credits him with keeping her writing short stories when the world demanded novels. Prepare to get to know what it's really like to work so closely with Canada's literary titans.
