Quebec City celebrates CanLit during the 2018 ImagiNation Writers’ Festival

From April 3 to 8, 2018, the Morrin Centre will be hosting its ninth annual writers’ festival. Building on popular recurring activities, such as the Books and Winepairing event, and the Books and Brunch activity, the festival will present a smorgasbord of celebrated authors, translators, and artists, during a week-long celebration of Canada’s diversity, and rich history and culture.

Some of the headlining authors include Indigenous writers David Wolfman (cooking demonstration on April 7), and Lee Maracle (Books and Brunch on April 8). Other visiting writers include visual artists Kyo Maclear and Jack Breakfast, literary stars Elizabeth Hay and Barbara Reid, as well as musicians Ron Sexsmith, Gary Barwin and Randall Spear. Festival events will explore themes including Quebec history, the giants of CanLit, contemporary science fiction, post-traumatic stress disorder, translation, seeking out nature in urban settings, and First Nation cultures.

Don’t miss this opportunity to connect with English-language authors from across the country, in the heart of Old Quebec. For more information on the complete program, and to purchase a festival pass or single event ticket, visit morrin.org/imagination or contact the Morrin Centre at 418-694-9147.
