Fire and Ashes:
One on One with
Michael Ignatieff

Hosted by Craig Oliver, Chief Political Correspondent, CTV News
"The shelves are full of memoirs written by successful politicians, painting their careers with the rosy glow of battles won. Michael Ignatieff tells a very different tale: of humility, self-discovery, and human connection. It is a book that plumbs the essence of politics, one that all voters and the leaders who would represent them should read.
— Anne-Marie Slaughter, Princeton University

We welcome renowned author and former Liberal Party of Canada leader, Michael Ignatieff back to the Writers Festival for a stirring meditation on contemporary politics and the lessons he learned in defeat. 


Join the conversation between Craig Oliver and Michael Ignatieff on what it is to be a citizen and why, even in today's adversarial climate, the aspirations of the political life can still outweigh the costs. His new book, Fire and Ashes, is not just for Canadians concerned about the future of the Liberal Party, but for all citizens concerned about the future of Canada and of political discourse in today's increasingly partisan world.  


Copies of Fire and Ashes and selected backlist titles will be available on-site. A booksigning will follow the event.
