Thu, Nov 28th, 3pm (doors 2:45), Writers’ Workshop with Susan Glickman

Susan Glickman lives, writes, paints, gardens, and walks the dog in Toronto, where she used to be an English professor, then a creative writing instructor at both Ryerson and the University of Toronto, and now works as a freelance editor. She is the author of seven volumes of poetry, all from Véhicule Press back in her hometown of Montreal, most recently What We Carry (2019). Her first novel, The Violin Lover (Goose Lane, 2006) won the Canadian Jewish Book Award for fiction and was named one of the year’s best novels by The National Post. Her second, The Tale-Teller (Cormorant, 2012), was a best-seller in Quebec after appearing in French as Les Aventures étranges et surprenantes d'Esther Brandeau, moussaillon (Editions du Boréal: 2013). Her Toronto murder mystery, Safe as Houses, was published in 2015, and her YA novel, The Discovery of Flight, in 2018 (and is now coming out in translation in Macedonia). Her first children’s book, Bernadette and the Lunch Bunch, was named one of the best books of 2008 by the Canadian Children’s Book Centre, and was followed by two others, also highly praised: Bernadette in the Doghouse (2011) and Bernadette to the Rescue (2012); all three have been published in French by Editions du Boréal. Her literary history, The Picturesque & the Sublime: A Poetics of the Canadian Landscape (McGill-Queen's University Press, 1998) won both the Gabrielle Roy Prize for the best work of English Canadian literary criticism and the Raymond Klibansky Prize for the best work in the Humanities.
