We Come Back Together: Olga Ravn
September 28 at 5pm
South Bays in Harbourfront Centre, September 28 at 5pm ET.
“We come back together, only to fall apart.”
TIFA is proud to present our new collection of writing penned by some of the world’s most distinctive voices. We invited 11 authors to respond to a phrase that encapsulates elements of life in 2022. Join us daily to hear authors read their newly commissioned work as part of our free, outdoor programming.
This event features author Olga Ravn, one of Denmark’s most celebrated contemporary authors, known for her masterful way of combining several genres. Her most recent novel The Employees was a finalist for the 2021 International Booker Prize.
The Ravn 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.
Please note this event has been moved from the outdoor Word Lab tent to the South Bays inside Harbourfront Centre.
Olga Ravn appears as part of Nordic Bridges 2022. Presented with support from the Danish Arts Foundation.
