Ottawa International Writers Festival Virtual Fall Season - Week 13

Web Banner for Versefest
07/11/2020

Week 13, November 9 - 15, 2020

Live Author Visits:

We are thrilled to be partnering with VerseFest to bring you an evening of acclaimed poetry and conversation hosted by Leslie Roach, whose collection Finish this Sentence is just out.

 

Podcast(s):

Our Remembrance Day podcast features Canadian historian Tim Cook on how World War Two has been remembered and taught over the past 75 years, and Scott Anderson’s bestselling overview of the early years of the Cold War and the CIA's covert battles against communism. Both authors examine military history and its role in our culture today.

This episode of the podcast takes a hard look at racial belonging in contemporary Canada. For too long the conversation on race in Canada has been framed by issues south of the border. Here, we examine our own culture and some of the ongoing barriers to equity and inclusion.

 

Pre-recorded Event(s):

CBC’s Lucy van Oldenbarneveld hosts Sarah Smarsh, the National Book Award finalist and New York Times bestselling author of Heartland. Her new book, She Come By It Natural: Dolly Parton and the Women Who Lived Her Songs , focuses her laser-sharp insights on a working-class icon and one of the most unifying figures in American culture: Dolly Parton.
