We deeply regret that, due to extreme weather conditions and the city of Winnipeg urging residents to stay off the road, this event has been canceled. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience or disappointment.

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 unforgettable story of a marriage as seen through the eyes of both husband and wife, Ayobami Adebayo’s Stay With Me (Vintage) asks how much we can sacrifice for the sake of family. Emmanuel Iduma’s A Stranger’s Pose (Cassava Republic) is an evocative and mesmerising account of travels across different African cities. These two authors will join host Ismaila Alfa to discuss their work.
