1. Loving the Bad Boy: A Story of Prison Romance

GG-winning author Diane Schoemperlen has penned a fearless and candid memoir about her six-year romantic involvement with a man convicted of second-degree murder. This Is Not My Life: A Memoir of Love, Prison, and Other Complications takes us into the heart of this doomed love affair, and describes the challenges presented by the lover himself, and by the system through which he and she have to navigate to have a relationship at all. Join Diane and author Merilyn Simonds (The Convict Lover) for a frank discussion of the challenges and pitfalls that face anyone whose partner is incarcerated.

This event is organized in collaboration with the Canada Council for the Arts to mark the 80th Anniversary of the Governor General’s Literary Awards.
