LitFest: A Place Called Home: Immigrant Writers' Stories
Sun, October 16, 2016, 2:00 PM – 4:00 PM MDT
Join six internationally published writers as they explore the impact of immigration and adaptation to a new culture on creative writing. What does a writer lose and what do they gain in calling a new place home? Sometimes caught between two worlds, how does the immigrant experience contribute to or complicate subject matter, narrative voice, and artistic endeavor? How is new work received both "back home" and in the new place? The evening will feature readings and a moderated open discussion. This event is co-presented by the Writers Guild of Alberta.
Alma Mancilla, Marina Ivanova, Susana Chalut, Yasser Abdul-Latif, Fahim Hassan, Anamol Mani.
