Shani Mootoo Wednesday 13 May 2009
Shani Mootoo will read from her most recent novel, Valmiki’s Daughter on Wednesday 13 May at 7:30 pm, at the Charles W. Stockey Centre.
Shani Mootoo’s first novel Cereus Blooms at Night, is one of my all time favourites, followed by her second novel He Drown She in the Sea. Shani was born in Ireland and raised in Trinidad where much of her writing is set. She has lived in Western Canada for several years. She is now living in Toronto, and with a new novel just published, it seemed to the time to invite this author, whose work I have admired for several years, to come to Parry Sound for the first time.
Tickets are $12 for adults, $11 for seniors and students
