Program Title: Miriam Toews reading and talking about her life
Description: In July 2016, Miriam Toews gave a solo reading at the annual Denman Island Readers and Writers Festival. This is raw audio of her very moving reading, and her explanation during the Q&A about how the story of a sister's suicide dovetails with her own family life. This is raw audio, but would require only minor editing, to deal with off-mic questions. It includes an introduction.
Featured Speakers/Guests: Miriam Toews [pronounced, approximately, TAYVZ or TEHVZ] is a Canadian author with seven novels to her credit. The best known are A Complicated Kindness and All My Puny Sorrows. She has won many awards, including two Giller prizes and a Governor General's award.
