Listen to “Yann Martel on Life of Pi” on Spreaker.
Check out this exclusive audio from last fall’s Wordfest Youth event, in which Yann Martel revealed the philosophical underpinnings and everyday relevance of his best-selling novel, Life of Pi, to 330 high school students here in Calgary. The students were transfixed, and then asked the best questions, which Yann answered honestly and so generously. The teachers were buzzing with excitement. And you, like the Wordfest team, will want to reread Life of Pi, knowing you’re about to get even more from it now. So, Happy Pi Day. And enjoy!
