Three Governor General’s Award-winning writers, and an unforgettable evening of readings and conversation!

MARTHA BROOKS, RAZIEL REID, and SUSIN NEILSEN all showcase with the trials and resilience of contemporary youth in books that are poignant, subtle, and challenging.

All three will read from their award-winning books, then share their thoughts with Festival Director Charlene Diehl about the challenges so many kids face on the road to adulthood, and about the need to tell those stories. Prepare to laugh, cry, and shake your head in wonder! We hope you’ll stick around afterward for some social time with friends and our special guests. McNally Robinson Booksellers will be on site with books.

Tickets are only $10, available at McNally Robinson and through the Festival office and website.

This event is organized in collaboration with the Canada Council for the Arts to celebrate the 2014 Governor General’s Literary Awards.
