Sicilian Awakenings: Fiction

September 29, 2019 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm

Some authors peel back the layers of character to reveal what makes us truly human. Some survey the historical record to find the lines that unite us through time. And some explore the passion, desperation, and terrible power of creativity, and the need to make something magical. Very few novelists do all of these; author Steven Price makes it look effortless. Join him in conversation with literary aficionado Gregory McCormick of the Toronto Public Library, as they discuss the capacity for fiction to tell many stories at once, and the remarkable legacy of 20th century Sicilian author Giuseppe Tomasi, the last prince of Lampedusa.
