Creating Fiction from Places We Know: Craig Davidson & David Bergen
October 25 at 5pm
Place and plot often intertwine in writing that strikes profound themes and tones. In this event, two masters of the craft will present their latest short story collections, which demonstrate their skilled approaches to creating stories rooted in a strong sense of place. Craig Davidson presents Cascade, a collection of stories set in a slightly seedy, slightly magical version of Niagara Falls. David Bergen presents Here the Dark, longlisted for the 2020 Scotiabank Giller Prize, chronicling the geographies of both place and heart in tales that travel from the streets of Vietnam to the islands of Honduras and to the Canadian prairies.
A version of this video with English captioning will be available to view 24 hours after the event premieres.
