Madeleine Thien, the featured author, is one of the most celebrated authors of 2016. CBC has declared her “Canada’s newest literary star.” The New York Times says, “Thien writes with the mastery of a conductor who is as in command of the symphony’s tempo as she is attuned to the nuances of each individual instrument.”

Her novel Do Not Say We Have Nothing won the Governor-General’s Literary Award for Fiction and the Giller Prize, and it was shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize.

Ms. Thien will read selections from the work and answer your questions about the novel, the art of writing, and life after gaining literary celebrity.

The event is sponsored by the Art Council of New Westminster and Fresh St. Market as a fundraiser for the One To One Literacy Society, which tutors elementary school children who are working towards reading proficiency. Hosted by New Westminster writer, JJ Lee, and friends, it will be an evening of book talk, refreshments, food, and good company by a roaring fire.

Tickets are $50 each; a charitable receipt for a portion of admission will be issued by the society to ticket holders. Advance tickets onlyNo ticket sales at the door.
