Jung Young Moon at the Toronto International Festival of Authors (Toronto)

November 2 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Anything can happen when two multi-award-winning international authors converge, but walls won’t confine them as they discuss place and other themes that influence the central characters of their latest books. One of Canada’s most respected novelists André Alexis will present his 2019 Scotiabank Giller Prize longlisted title, Days By Moonlight. Multi-award-winning Korean author Jung Young Moon presents Seven Samurai Swept Away in a River. Join them for a meditation on place and its many polarizing implications on culture, tradition and prejudice. The pair will be interviewed by Steven W. Beattie. Hosted by Téa Mutonji.
