Join Canadian writer and filmmaker Alex Pugsley with Scottish writer Douglas Stuart as they talk about coming of age stories, drugs, addiction and the impact of local cultures. Stuart recently published his debut book, Shuggie Bain. The book is a fictional take on growing up in public housing in Glasgow during the 1980s, during the peak of the city’s drug epidemic. Pugsley presents the first in a series of five autobiographical novels, Aubrey McKee, a collection of connected short stories about a boy coming of age in 1970-80s Halifax.
