THIN AIR: Afternoon Book Chats


Join us for Afternoon Book Chats as part of the THIN AIR Winnipeg International Writers Festival. Drop in for an hour of fascinating conversation with pairs of writers from this year's festival line-up, September 26 - October 12.

Lauren Carter & Catherine Leroux: Short stories about our longing for connection but also the need for independence? Or a gorgeously translated novel about a community-focused version of the future? No matter what you’re into, both Places Like These and The Future bring us closer to an understanding of our humanity.
