Each day of the Festival, authors and industry experts will come together for candid, live conversations to examine a new facet of the culture and politics that shape the world around us and the books we read.

Healthcare systems have long been struggling to cope, but the COVID-19 pandemic and the possibility of future iterations have placed unbearable stress on the system, which still has to deal with the challenges of complex healthcare demands for an ageing population, mental health needs and more as society’s needs change. How does the healthcare system fight a war on two fronts? Joining the conversation will be Dr. Brian Goldman, ER doctor, bestselling author and host of the popular CBC Radio show White Coat, Black Art, and Dan Werb, an epidemiologist at the University of California San Diego and the University of Toronto whose book The Invisible Siege investigates the origins of COVID.

Moderated by Wency Leung.
