An Evening with George Saunders

Date: 
Saturday, April 8, 2017 - 7:30pm to 9:00pm
If you aren't familiar with George Saunders, now is your chance! The author of the bestselling The Tenth of December, Saunders is an absurdist, humanist, satirical master of both the essay and the short story. His long-awaited first novel, Lincoln in the Bardo, is garnering huge acclaim, and we are delighted to present an evening with one of our very favourite writers!
 
A moving and original father-son story Lincoln in the Bardo features none other than Abraham Lincoln, as well as an unforgettable cast of supporting characters, living and dead, historical and invented. It is an astonishing feat of imagination and a bold step forward from one of the most important and influential writers of his generation. Formally daring, generous in spirit, deeply concerned with matters of the heart, it is a testament to fiction’s ability to speak honestly and powerfully to the things that really matter to us. Saunders has invented a thrilling new form that deploys a kaleidoscopic, theatrical panorama of voices to ask a timeless, profound question: How do we live and love when we know that everything we love must end?
