MATINÉE AT THE RALPH CONNOR HOUSE: THE WRITERS’ GALLERY
The writers are here! The historic Ralph Connor House in West Gate transforms into a gallery space to showcase 19 whimsical papier-maché busts of Canadian writers by artist Susan Longmire. Join local writers David Bergen, Lise Gaboury-Diallo, and Chandra Mayor as they read their own work alongside snippets of the work by the Manitobans in the cast: Carol Shields, Gabrielle Roy, and Margaret Laurence. On hand to represent the presiding spirit of the house, the prolific novelist Ralph Connor, is his granddaughter, Toronto writer Alison Gordon..
