What happens when the most frightening of monsters aren’t mythical or magical, but are ourselves? Join two leading writers for a fascinating, potentially uncomfortable but honest discussion. Governor General’s Literary Award-winner Cherie Dimaline and twice Carnegie Medal-winner Patrick Ness challenge our self-awareness as they present their highly anticipated new, young adult novels. Ness brings us Burn, an all-consuming story of revenge, redemption and dragons; and Dimaline unveils Hunting By Stars, the thrilling follow up to The Marrow Thieves, depicting a dystopian world where the Indigenous people of North America are being hunted for their bone marrow and ability to dream. Plus there is the opportunity for live audience Q&A. Moderated by Janet Smyth.
Recommended for ages 12 and up.
