Brisbane Writers Festival and Brisbane Powerhouse presents
Fri 13 Jul 2012
Join award-winning, American author Richard Ford, in conversation with Steven Lang, author and Director of Outspoken Maleny, at a Brisbane Writers Festival Bookend Event for a lively discussion about his latest book, Canada.
A visionary novel of vast landscapes, complex identities and fragile humanity, Canada questions the fine line between the normal and the extraordinary and the moments in our lives that take us into new worlds.
Richard’s novel Independence Day was awarded the Pulitzer Prize and the PEN/Faulkner Award for Fiction. He has published seven novels and three collections of stories, including The Sportswriter, Independence Day, Wildlife, A Multitude of Sins, A Piece of My Heart, Rock Springs, The Ultimate Good Luck, Women with Men and The Lay of the Land.
Brisbane’s Better Bookshops will be selling books at the event. Purchase your copy of Canada and have it signed by the author after the event.
This event is suitable for people aged 15 years and over.
