Douglas Gibson is very familiar to our audiences after two very successful appearances at our ImagiNation Writers’ Festival in recent years. Now the “legendary Publisher” is back with a lively celebration of Canada’s greatest Fiction Writers, “GREAT SCOTS: Canada’s Finest Fiction Storytellers With Scottish Links from 1867 to Today.”
Some of his selections will surprise many observers, none more than the Quebec author pictured here, and linked with our own Morrin Centre. What is the Scottish link with Philippe-Joseph Aubert de Gaspe? Come to the show and find out.
Among predictable names like MacLennan and MacLeod and Mitchell and Laurence you may be surprised to find people named Gallant, and Davies, and Atwood, and even Leacock. Not to mention authors named Montgomery and Munro, among many others.
A fascinating, thought-provoking event that you will greatly enjoy–especially since so many bursts of music from the times enliven the show, along with dozens of classic Canadian paintings that reveal the artistic times in which our great authors worked.
