Last Words: Four Fiction Writers

This intercultural literary reading will feature four fiction writers, one from Montreal and three from New York, two of whom (Lesley Trites and Virginia Konchan) will be reading from their debut short story collections. Reading from published stories and those in progress, the theme of the reading is bridging the gap between Canadian and American contemporary fiction — all four readers have either lived in Canada or are Canadian citizens — and integrating the past with the (apocalyptic) future.
