Journey Through Time: Canadian Historical Fiction Panel

Have you ever wondered what Canada was like in years gone by? Join us as we take a trip back in time at the Stratford Writers Festival! Lynne Golding writes about Brampton, Ontario, in the early 1900s in The Innocent, while Joanna Goodman focuses on 1950s Quebec in The Home for Unwanted Girls. Both of these authors base their novels in fact, and seek to guide their readers through a familiar Canadian place, albeit in a historical setting with which many readers may not be familiar. Join them as they discuss their approaches—Lynne spent years interviewing her great aunt in order to do her story justice, while Joanna's tale is based on her mother's experiences—and styles in this uniquely Canadian historical fiction panel discussion.
