Spring Literary Series
McNally Robinson Booksellers in Winnipeg has teamed up with the Winnipeg International Writers Festival for a very special Spring Literary Series. Over these events spanning March through June we'll be exploring poetry, literature, children's fiction, and the art of memoir. See below for the featured author events.
Helen Humphreys, Friday March 10, 7:00 pm
A special offsite event at Crescent Fort Rouge United Church at which Humphreys will talk about the process of writing her book The River (ECW Press) as part of Artfest. The presentation will be followed by a short reading and conversation hosted by Charlene Diehl, Director of the Winnipeg International Writers Festival.
Jon Paul Fiorentino’s latest collection documents the daily din and clatter of cafes, galleries, and dive bars that make up the Montreal community of Mile End, one of the most vibrant neighbourhoods in the world. While addressing the disconnect between the way we treat each other online and the way we treat each other in real life, Leaving Mile End (Anvil Press) provides a new framework for understanding what it means to be home. He'll be discussing the collection with Bruce Symaka this evening.
