SuperFan Showcase: André Alexis & Yann Martel

Memorial Park Library, 2nd Floor
1221 2 St SW

Wordfest is thrilled to be partnering with PEN Canada on the SuperFan Showcase series, in which notable Canadians engage in wide-ranging, generous conversation about writing and ideas with their favourite authors. When we approached Yann Martel, he loved the idea of an in-person show, but thought he would be the host, given how much he enjoys André Alexis’s work. Actually, it was André who asked for Yann – which demonstrates that this 75-minute event is going to be well-grounded in mutual admiration (although they will likely both recoil at the notion of super-fandom). Intelligent. Self-effacing. Unpredictable. Not to be missed.

Includes an audience Q&A and book signing. We are grateful to partner with PEN Canada on this very special broadcast. PEN Canada celebrates literature, defends freedom of expression and aids writers in peril. To learn more, please visit Pen Canada.com.

This event is part of Wordfest’s Imaginairium festival, Sept. 29 – Oct. 6, 2022. Connect with 60+ of the world’s most generous writers, thinkers, activators and inspirers, gathered just for you in Calgary, Canada. For more info: wordfest.com
