How do multilingual speakers negotiate the space between two or more cultures in an increasingly multicultural and multilingual environment? How can multilingual writers expand the horizon for literature in our city, province, and country? With a strong passion for English and/or their heritage languages, six Canadian writers offer their inspiration and stories; raise questions about community, nation, and belonging; and explore new ways of addressing audiences in Canada as well as at home. Panelists will include Mila Philipzig, Lisa Dublin, Leilei Chen, Luciana Erregue-Sacchi, Shimelis Gebremichael, and (Ja)nine Muster. Hosted by Nisha Patel.
Presented by the Borderlines Writers Circle members of the Writers' Guild of Alberta.
