The Book Drunkard Literary Festival

Join us for a compelling conversation with Steven and Shandi. Both well-established literary writers, this promises to be an interesting chat! Your ticket includes a full, hot brunch.

 

Steven Price

Steven Price is the author of two novels, By Gaslight (2016), longlisted for the Scotiabank Giller Prize, and Into That Darkness (2011). Also an acclaimed poet, he has written two award-winning poetry books, Anatomy of Keys (2006), winner of the Gerald Lampert Award, and Omens in the Year of the Ox (2012), winner of the ReLit Award. Fun fact: Steven is married to two-time Giller Prize winner Esi Edugyan. Who knows, maybe this year the Giller will slide across the mantel?
