26. Robertson Davies Dinner
Dinner and Author Keynote and conversation
Thomas King with Eric Friesen


Thomas King, novelist, short-story writer, essayist, screenwriter, and broadcaster is perhaps best known for An Inconvenient Indian, an authoritative account of Indigenous history in North America, believed by some to be the book every Canadian should read. In the tradition of Robertson Davies, Tom is a gifted storyteller and humourist who has a way with a story. Join him for a formal dinner event, brief keynote address, and conversation with radio journalist Eric Friesen about Tom's writing life, his turn as a writer of the DreadfulWater mystery novels, and the past and future of Indigenous literature.
Cash bar.
