Well, this is going to be the most fun: Terry Fallis and Linden MacIntyre at the top of their game, in total control of their art, in the event their avid fans have been longing for. Two of Canada's most masterful – and beloved – storytellers on the same virtual stage, regaling us with tales of political tomfoolery, indomitable humanity, and sublime insights into the workings of our outer and inner worlds.
The one-hour livestream event on Wordfest.com starts at 7:00 PM MT and will be hosted by Zain Velji. (The pre-show begins at 6:50 PM.) The day after the show, we'll email you our unique Digital Doggie Bag, featuring links and extras sparked by the conversation.
