The Search for the Transcendent: Christy Ann Conlin & Jordan Tannahill
Originally aired on October 26
Re-release November 30
Bestselling author Christy Ann Conlin and two-time Governor General’s Award-winning playwright and author Jordan Tannahill take their places on the TIFA virtual stage to present their latest novels. In Conlin’s feminist tour de force The Speed of Mercy, dark family secrets and a tender, protective friendship between women converge to create an unusual story set in idyllic rural Nova Scotia. Tannahill’s The Listeners (shortlisted for the 2021 Scotiabank Giller Prize) is an exhilarating and erotic novel exploring the seduction of the wild and unknowable, the rise of conspiracy culture in the West, and the desire for community in our increasingly polarized times.
