We Come Back Together: Markiyan Kamysh

September 25 at 6pm

South Bays in Harbourfront Centre, September 25 at 6pm ET.

“We come back together, only to fall apart.”

TIFA is proud to present a new collection of writing that responds to this phrase, penned by some of the world’s most distinct voices. Join us daily to hear authors read their newly commissioned work as part of our free, outdoor programming.

This event features author Markiyan Kamysh’s commission piece, read by a Festival author. Markiyan Kamysh is a Ukranian novelist who has been illegally exploring the Chornobyl Exclusion Zone since 2010 and representing the underground through literature. His first novel, Stalking the Atomic City explores this intriguing, yet dangerous place where his father, a nuclear specialist, was a liquidator.

The Kamysh reading will be followed by a PEN Canada Writers in Prison Reading; you’ll hear Festival authors perform free readings of short prose and verse written by imprisoned writers from around the world including journalists, literary critics, filmmakers and a Nobel peace laureate. Curated in partnership with PEN Canada, an organization that defends freedom of expression and promotes global community through literature.

Due to weather conditions, this event will take place inside Harbourfront Centre’s main building.
