READING EVENT 8: Saturday Night Gala
Thomas King in Conversation with Tanya Talaga
6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. PDT | $22 In-person | $10 Online
Fairmont Chateau Whistler
Sponsored by: RGF Integrated Wealth Management

Join moderator and Ojibwe author Tanya Talaga (All Our Relations: Finding the Path Forward) in conversation with award-winning novelist and short-story writer Thomas King, author of The Back of the Turtle, The Inconvenient Indian and Indians on Vacation. His latest novel is Sufferance, a sly and satiric look at the fractures in modern existence. The story follows Jeremiah Camp, aka The Forecaster, who can look into the heart of humanity and see the patterns that create opportunities and profits for the rich and powerful. Disillusioned and losing hope, he escapes to a small town on an Indian reserve where the locals won’t leave him alone, and his past begins to catch up with him. Sufferance is a bold and provocative novel about the social and political consequences of the inequality created by privilege and power -- and what we might do about it.

Come early to the Fairmont Chateau Whistler see and hear the Sea to Sky String Orchestra, starting at 5:40 p.m.

Moderator: Tanya Talaga
