Wordfest is thrilled to present writer, podcast host, and pop-culture pundit Elamin Abdelmahmoud and his eagerly awaited first book, Son of Elsewhere: A Memoir in Pieces.
The 75-minute live conversation will start at 7:00 PM MT and will be hosted by Scotiabank Giller Prize winning novelist and journalist Omar El Akkad. It will be followed by a book signing. You'll also receive our Digital Doggie Bag, a post-show recap with bonus extras sparked by the conversation.
We are grateful to Penguin Random House Canada for making it possible for us to connect you with both of these galvanizing authors.
Our Collective Safety & Comfort
To provide a community-first return to live programming for patrons, authors, Wordfest staff, volunteers and the venue staff, we will be taking the following precautions.
- Masks are strongly encouraged. We recommend wearing your mask at all times while at the venue when not eating or drinking, including when seated in the theatre and in the post-show signing line.
- Bar Service will be available pre- and post-show to enjoy socially distanced in the lobby or while seated in the theatre.
- We will also offer “London Book Service” as an alternative to the post-event book signing. (Patrons can pre-purchase books through Owl’s Nest Books in advance or at the door and authors will sign these copies prior to the event, allowing pre-purchased copies to be picked up before and after the show from a table separate from the book signing line.)
