Massawa Café and Bistro, 10153 97 St.
Join six internationally-published writers as they explore the impact immigration and adaptation to a new culture have on creative writing. What does a writer lose and what do they gain in calling a new place home? Sometimes caught between two worlds, how does the immigrant experience contribute to or complicate subject matter, narrative voice, and artistic endeavour? How is new work received both “back home” and in the new place? The evening will feature readings by members of the Borderlines Writers Circle and a moderated, open discussion. Free Admission.
