Dakshana Bascaramurty in Conversation with David Bergen, Annahid Dashtgard, Waubgeshig Rice, Emily St. John Mandel
Join moderator Dakshana Bascaramurty in an insightful, wide-ranging conversation that delves into nuanced fictional stories and non-fiction subject matter, involving: the rendering of complex moral ambiguities, and asking what it means to be lost—and how, through grace, we can be found; a unique perspective on how racism and systemic discrimination result in emotional scarring and ongoing PTSD; the story of how a remote, northern First Nations community learns to rely on old ways to survive in a post-apocalyptic world; and a captivating imagining of money, beauty, white-collar crime, ghosts and moral compromise. David Bergen (Here the Dark), Annahid Dashtgard (Breaking the Ocean: A Memoir of Race, Rebellion, and Reconciliation), Waubgeshig Rice (Moon of the Crusted Snow), Emily St. John Mandel (The Glass Hotel). Moderated by Dakshana Bascaramurty and sponsored by Whistler Metal Works.
