International Festival of Authors Preview - Part 2
It is an international festival, after all. Here are the best of the rest.
Saturday, Oct 21, (possibly the best day)
2p - reporting legend Gay Talese is interviewed by Shayghnessy Bishop-Stall. The NYC gossip alone should be worth the price of admission.
Also at 4p - Marisha Pessl reads from her fantastic Special Topics in Calamity Physics (with three other authors). But you have to go hear Pessl. Really, the book is wicked smart.
(She's also part of a round table on Sunday at 5p)
8p - Definitely check out the Governor General's Literary Award reading, noms will be announced on the 16th, but if it's anything like last year, you'll be duly impressed.
8p - A book-lover's book-lover, Alberto Manguel, reads and hosts a round table.
The last hurrah!
12p - sort-of-famous Don McKellar interviews Ryan Knighton (his book is about slowly going blind).
8p - The baffling Giller finalists reading - wherein (one hopes) the noms with be utterly justified.
Readings etc. take place at the Harbourfront Centre, tickets are 15$ a pop, except the M&S fiesta, which goes for 25$ (students and members pay 12$ and 20$). The box office can be reached at 416.973.4000.
