Longlisted for the 2021 Booker Prize, Richard Powers’s Bewilderment draws you into the intimate relationship of astrobiologist and single father Theo Byrne and his troubled yet loving son, Robin. In an unforgettable live discussion between the Pulitzer Prize-winning author and CBC Writers and Company host Eleanor Wachtel, comes a moving conversation about the cosmos, father-son relationships, and the ways we answer the innocent curiosities of children in the face of a self-destructive world. This event will take place on Zoom. An email with the access link will be sent to registrants within 24 hours of showtime.
This event is generously supported by the Vancouver Writers Fest. Bewilderment has been named one of the Most Anticipated Books of 2021 by Newsweek, Los Angeles Times, Chicago Tribune, BuzzFeed, Goodreads, New York Magazine and Times of London.
This event is co-presented by the Vancouver Writers Fest. The official bookseller for this event is Indigo.
