Canadian Writers in Person Lecture Series

Redefining the Classroom

Film screening of data-based material of prominent Canadian authors

The Canadian Writers in Person Series has invited an impressive lineup of emerging and established Canadian writers to read at the York campus. Professors John Unrau, Gail Vanstone, Stephen Cain and Leslie Sanders have directed this course for students and community members.

For over eleven years, students, members of York, the public, and community at large are free to explore the contemporary work of renowned Canadian poets, playwrights, and prolific fiction writers, as well as have a unique opportunity to engage with them in a dialogue about their work.

This film is a compilation of database material/interviews collected over the past five years.

We invite you to join us on December 8th, 2009 at 7pm in 206 Accolade West, for the launch of the film.

A demonstration of how "readers" can access its data-based contents will be followed by a short panel discussion between writers and publishers of Canadian literature, ending with a reception in the lobby adjacent to the lecture hall. Featured at the event will be a display of the Canadian Writers in Person yearly posters.

Special guests will include: Anthony De Sa, Lien Chao, Caitlin Fisher, John Unrau, Afua Cooper and others.

RSVP by December 7th - For more information: 416-736-2100 x 33693 (Dept. of Humanities, LA&PS)
