The Winnipeg International Writers Festival has teamed up with co-presenters McNally Robinson Booksellers for a special Fall Literary Series. Over these events spanning September, October and November we’ll be exploring a wide variety of the best literature from Canada and beyond.
The stories in Season of Fury and Wonder (Coteau Books) present the lives of old women who understand that they have been created by their pasts. But there’s another layer to this standard-setting example of “cronelit.” The stories in are all reactions to other, classic, works of literature that Sharon Butala has encountered and admired. She’ll discuss her new collection with host Lauren Carter.
