Sign up/in to register for this event

Canadian authors Kate Pullinger and Helen Humphreys will discuss how bearing witness, homelessness and the long-term effects of trauma translate, as demonstrated in their latest novels, both set in the mid-twentieth century. In Forrest Green, Governor General Award-winning author Pullinger presents a man on the run from himself, first as a young golden boy and then as a Word War II soldier and eventually a nomadic working man who cannot believe he deserves love. In Rabbit Foot Bill, Harbourfront Festival Prize-winner Helen Humphreys introduces us to a lonely boy in a prairie town whose friendships and understanding of the world shatter before him when he witnesses a shocking murder. Don’t miss this special Festival opening night double interview.

Interviewer: Deborah Dundas
