Arts Commons – Big Secret Theatre, 205 8th Ave SE[gdlr_space height="20px"] An impressive range of storytelling gusto is on display as four award-winning writers give short readings and on-stage interviews about their latest books. André Alexis explores themes of honor, faith and sin in The Hidden Keys, inspired by a reading of Robert Louis Stevenson's Treasure Island. Booker Prize longlister Madeleine Thien delves into the lives of two successive generations in a novel set before, during and after the Tiananmen Square protests of 1989. Tim Falconer — a self-confessed “bad singer” — is one of the 2.5 percent of the population afflicted with amusia. Jim Lynch gives us a grand and idiosyncratic family saga set on a seafaring vessel. In Precious Cargo, Craig Davidson tells the unvarnished story of his unlikely relationship with the kids he drove on School Bus 3077. Hosted by Jennifer Keene. [gdlr_divider type="solid" size="100%" ]
