This season of Incite features fantastic writers from Canada and around the world. Eva Stachniak's historical dramas are bestsellers and her forthcoming book, Empress of the Night, is an intimate look at Catherine the Great. Award-winning Angolan writer Ondjaki will talk about his new book, Granma Nineteen and the Soviet's Secret. Eufemia Fantetti will read from her new book of short stories, A Recipe for Disaster & Other Unlikely Tales of Love, "a delicious blend of dark humour and edgy insight." And local author Nancy Lee will appear at Incite with her highly anticipated debut novel, The Age.
Please see below for the event dates in our 2014 season:
- Wednesday, May 7, 2014: Ondjaki, Sean Michaels and Claire Battershill
