Zadie Smith in Conversation with Madeleine Thien
Presented in partnership with UBC School of Creative Writing and the Chan Centre for the Performing Arts.
Zadie Smith, widely recognized as one of the most influential authors writing in English today, joins us with her new work of historical fiction, The Fraud. Smith speaks with her internationally-renowned Canadian contemporary, Madeleine Thien. The Vancouver Writers Fest is making this event free to all, as a gift to the community that has supported us so steadfastly through these pandemic years. If you don’t have a ticket: there will be a standby line at the venue set up two hours prior to the event, where empty seats will be assigned on a first-come, first-serve basis. Books will be for sale at the event courtesy of Book Warehouse, a division of Black Bond Books.
