Read for the Cure 2022


7:30–9:30PM (EST)

Three of the most dazzling novelists of our generation bring tales of love, identity and family to Toronto’s Palais Royale on its centennial.

The meaning of family is stretched, blurred and made anew in Camilla Gibb’s bestselling novel, The Relatives. Giller-nominee Kathleen Winter dazzles with Undersong, a reimagining of the lost years of Dorothy Wordsworth, a misunderstood and overlooked Romantic Era genius who was also the sister of enduring poet, William Wordsworth. Order of Canada recipient and bestselling novelist, international playwright, and actor Ann-Marie MacDonald’s Fayne conjures classical Gothic mystery and elegance through its palpable setting, haunted characters and dire pacing. Internationally-acclaimed journalist and feature writer for the Globe and Mail and CBC TV host Johanna Schneller moderates this lively, beguiling conversation, followed by an audience Q&A.
