Ottawa International Writers Festival Virtual Fall Season - Week 12

Web Banner for Kagiso Lesego Molope

Week 12, November 2 - 8, 2020

Live Author Visits:

Don’t miss this conversation on writing craft with Kagiso Lesego Molope that focuses on writing an authentic voice. Francesca Ekwuyasi, whose debut novel, BUTTER HONEY PIG BREAD, was long listed for the 2020 Giller Prize, hosts the conversation with Ottawa’s own Kagiso Lesego Molope. Her novel, This Book Betrays My Brother won the Ottawa Book Award, and was included as a Kirkus Reviews' Best Books, Globe 100, CBC Books, Top YA Pick and Chicago Public Library's Best of the Best Books and her follow up Such a Lonely, Lovely Road won the Pius Adesanmi Memorial Award for Excellence in African Writing.



Playwright, novelist, and screenwriter Emma Donoghue hosts a conversation with editor and author Lennie Goodings about her book, A Bite of the Apple: A Life with Books, Writers and Virago. Part memoir, part literary history, and part reflection on more than forty years of feminist publishing, A Bite of the Apple is a story of idealism and pragmatism, solidarity and individual ambition, of challenges met and the battles not yet won—and, above all, a steadfast celebration of the making and reading of books.


Pre-recorded Event(s):

Acclaimed poet David O’Meara hosts a conversation with Griffen Poetry Prize winner A.F. Moritz. As Far As You Know, A. F. Moritz’s twentieth collection of poems, begins with two sections entitled “Terrorism” and “Poetry.” The book unfolds in six movements, yet it revolves around and agonizes over the struggle between these two catalyzing concepts, in all the forms they might take, eventually arguing they are the unavoidable conditions and quandary of human life.
