The Vancouver Writers Fest: Reinventing the Novel

  • The Revue Stage, Granville Island, Vancouver 1601 Johnston Street Vancouver, BC, V6H 3R9 Canada (map)

Rules were made to be broken in this conversation between visionary authors, each dismantling the conventional novel. Giller Prize shortlisted writer Anakana Schofield’s new book, Bina, is a “novel in warnings” that captures the rage and wit of an unforgettable ordinary-extraordinary woman. In 26 Knots, Bindu Suresh tells a lush, interlocking love story in twenty-six startling vignettes. Employing innovative forms to capture both the fear and transcendence of the women who live in The Town, Sara Peters’ razor-sharp interrogation of gendered violence, I Become a Delight to My Enemies, deftly oscillates between poetry, prose and the profound. Prepare to be delighted by storytelling as you’ve never seen it before.
