We were beyond thrilled to have an opportunity to chat with Dionne Brand about her latest novel Theory. Dionne Brand will be at this year’s Vancouver Writer’s Festival in a number of events including Fresh Fiction on Thursday, October 18th at Revue Stage.
Feminism isn’t a concise topic. It’s diverse and nuanced and connects a plentitude of voices across disparate communities. From October 15-21, 2018, the Vancouver Writers Fest will host some of literature’s most insightful feminist thinkers to speak to the many facets of the movement, including these eight notable Festival authors who will address some of society’s most pressing issues in conversations and panel discussions.
Just in time for Halloween, Roomies Alissa McArthur and Rose Morris have put together a list of some of their favourite female gothic writers, both historical and contemporary.
