Award-winning Canadian authors Kaie Kellough and Souvankham Thammavongsa document the immigrant experience of navigating race, family and coming-of-age, in their latest short story collections. Kellough links portraits from the Afro-Canadian diaspora, mapping an alternate Canada—one crisscrossed by music, futures and portals to a Caribbean past, in Dominoes at the Crossroads. Thammavongsa uses compassion and wry humour to honour characters struggling to find their bearings far from home, as they do the grunt work of their new surroundings. Join these authors for a conversation about the real world experiences that inspired their fictional stories, and share in the universal familiarity of displaced dreams and unknown futures.
