We invite you to tune in at 7 p.m. MT on Thursday, March 31, to eavesdrop on Colm Tóibín in conversation with the Rt. Honourable Adrienne Clarkson as these literary friends discuss the primal business of sound and the unease of dark, secret, shadowy places; recite Yeats; explore their shared love of an "out of fashion" modern master; and yes, celebrate Tóibín's glorious literary breadth in a penetrating, wide-ranging, soul-nourishing hour. It's the launch event of the Superfan Showcase, a new PEN Canada & Wordfest series highlighting the deep appreciation and affection we have for our favourite authors.
The live stream is free – and if you RSVP, we'll send you a reminder on the morning of the show, as well as Wordfest's unique Digital Doggie Bag over the weekend with bonus extras sparked by the conversation and a link to watch (or rewatch) on demand until April 8, 2022.
