Word on the Street 2015

Diaspora Dialogues is excited to participate in this year’s Word on the Street festival at its new location of Harbourfront!

THE STORY BEHIND THE BOOK: FOUR WRITERS ON HOW THEY GOT PUBLISHED

Four culturally diverse writers discuss how they got their first book published. From creative conception to publication, the writers will tell their own stories, with a special focus on how being a writer of colour may have impacted that journey.

Following personal talks and readings from each writer, there will be a lively discussion moderated by Donna-Michelle St. Bernard.

The writers on hand will be: Sabrina Ramnanan (Nothing Like Love, Doubleday Canada), Jon Chan Simpson (Chinkstar, Coach House Books), Jael Richardson(The Stone Thrower, Dundurn Press), and Cherie Dimaline (A Gentle Habit, Kegedonce Books).
