The Canadians Are Coming!
Saturday, September 16 * The BCA Center & Contois Auditorium
For the first time ever, the Burlington Book Festival is partnering with publisher associations north of the border to present a day-long program of acclaimed Canadian writers. Given what’s going on in Washington DC, it seemed like the perfect time for an investigation. An exploration of a completely different culture, one rich in tradition and, at the same time, pushing the boundaries of 21st century literature.
Please join us as we spend the day discovering a brilliant new world of words and ideas while getting to know a number of the most significant literary figures of our time, including Herménégilde Chiasson, OC, ONB, recipient of the Governor General’s Award, Shenaaz Nanji, Cora Sire, Daniel H. Dugas, J Mae Barizo and Faizal Deen.
We invite you to google them but be forewarned: Your mind is going to be blown.
