Vancouver Writers Fest Presents The International Sunday Brunch With Joshua Ferris, Claire Fuller, Linda Boström Knausgård, Pilar Quintana, Jaap Robben, and Jeff VanderMeer on Sunday 24 October at 11 am Pacific time
Sunday is made for slow, quiet mornings of contemplation, relaxation… and deliciousness. Enjoy a cozy morning at home with your favourite brunch, and listen to readings from a range of fascinating international writers, each sharing their favourite passages from new releases. Joshua Ferris (A Calling for Charlie Barnes) is a New Yorker 40 Under 40 and PEN/Hemingway award recipient; Desmond Elliott Prize-winner Claire Fuller presents her Women’s Prize shortlisted novel, Unsettled Ground; Jeff VanderMeer, a Nebula and Shirley Jackson Award winner, returns to bestseller status with Hummingbird Salamander; Jaap Robben was longlisted for the Booker and offers another tender tale in Summer Brother; Linda Boström Knausgård shares a poignant, nuanced story of overcoming mental illness and isolation; and Pilar Quintana shares The Bitch, a finalist for the 2020 National Book Award for Translated Literature. Share some eggs with these literary stars.
