We welcome two of Canada’s most acclaimed authors for a taste of their new novels and a conversation about how we are defined by family, history and our bond with the ones we love.
From Claire Cameron, the bestselling author of The Bear, comes the enthralling story of two women separated by millennia, but linked by an epic journey that will transform them both. The Last Neanderthal asks us to reconsider all we think we know about what it means to be human.
The farthest place you can go is closer than you can imagine. Barbara Gowdy ’s Little Sister explores the astonishing power of empathy, the question of where we end and others begin, and the fierce bonds of motherhood and sisterhood.
