READING EVENT 2: The Booklovers’ Literary Salon

By Whistler Writers Festival (other events)

Friday, October 16 2020 4:00 PM 5:00 PM PST

With Marina Endicott

Rebecca Wood Barrett will lead a book-club style conversation with Marina Endicott, author of novel The Difference, a sweeping tale set aboard the Morning Light, a Nova Scotian merchant ship sailing through the South Pacific in 1912. Inspired by a true story, Marina Endicott shows us a now-vanished world in all its wonder, and in its darkness, prejudice, and difficulty, too. She also brilliantly illuminates our present time through Kay’s examination of the idea of “difference”—between people, classes, continents, cultures, customs and species. Participants and book clubs are encouraged to read Endicott’s latest novel to fully engage in the discussion. Visit your local bookseller (Armchair Books in Whistler) or online stores to get your copy.
