Don’t miss a special evening with two of Canada’s best storytellers. Get a taste of their new novels and join the conversation on how we are shaped by the adversity we face.

In Crying for the Moon , her brilliantly funny and poignant debut novel, actress, comedian and social activist Mary Walsh has created the unforgettable Maureen Brennan, a young woman coming of age in late 1960s St. John’s, Newfoundland

Heather O’Neill, the Canada Reads winner and two-time Giller Prize shortlisted author, returns to the Festival with The Lonely Hearts Hotel, a dazzling circus of a novel set in the seductive underside of Montreal and New York between the wars.

Books available for purchase at every event: Proceeds support our free children’s literacy programs.
