Join moderator Alix Ohlin in an insightful, wide-ranging conversation that delves into nuanced fictional stories and non-fiction subject matter, involving: a magical being who struggles against his nature; a forbidden union between two enslaved men; stories of characters negotiating distance; a meditation on the socio-political and economic forces that created African-Nova Scotia; and a view of the global refugee crisis brought down to the level of a child's eyes. Featuring George Elliott Clarke (Where Beauty Survived: An Africadian Memoir), Omar El Akkad (What Strange Paradise), Robert Jones Jr. (The Prophets), Eden Robinson (Return of the Trickster), and M.G. Vassanji (What You Are).
