Eva Crocker and Clara Dupuis-Morency discuss the intersections of desire and disease and the innate human need to connect even when the world is unraveling. Set against the tumultuous times of the early days of Covid-19, protagonist Marcy is swept into an equally tumultuous romance while the world struggles to keep up with a ‘new normal’ in Crocker’s Back to the Land of the Living. In Dupuis-Morency’s Sadie X, a family crisis lures virus researcher Sadie home, away from her life of sex, drugs and alcohol, and her studies with the brilliant virologist who taught her how to think infectiously.

Moderated by Sue Carter.

Presented with support from the Bureau du Québec à Toronto (BQT).
