Christine Fischer Guy & Paul Vermeersch at INSPIRE! November 14

This weekend marks the 2014 installment of INSPIRE! Toronto International Book Fair. As part of this celebration of literary life, Wolsak & Wynn/Buckrider Books author Christine Fischer Guy will discuss Writing About the Past at 2:30 p.m. on Friday, November 14, on the Spark Stage. Christine's debut novel, The Umbrella Mender, takes place in 1950s Moose Factory during a tuberculosis epidemic. Against this historical backdrop is set a timeless story of star-crossed lovers and long-buried secrets, told in rich, impeccable prose.

At 3:00 p.m., Wolsak & Wynn/Buckrider Books Senior Editor Paul Vermeersch discusses Writing About the Future. In his newest poetry collection, Don't Let It End Like This Tell Them I Said Something, published by ECW Press and nominated for a Pushcart Prize, Paul "assumes the mantle of prophetic, post-apocalyptic poet...[with] a paradoxical mix of cynicism and hope" (Jason Wiens, Quill & Quire).

Both events take place on the Spark Stage, located in the northwest corner of the fair. INSPIRE! takes place at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, North Building (main level).
