Black History Month: Writer-In-Residence 2022, George Elliot Clarke
The Writer-in-residence program is an introduction to the University and Faculty of Arts to someone with a wealth of talent in the arts. The focus of creative writing develops our students for their future — it gives them direct access to accomplished writers who share their methods and challenges with writing and publishing. They have a first-hand opportunity to learn writing practices from professionals.
Don’t miss out on the opportunity to hear George read from his latest book, a vibrant, revealing memoir about the cultural and familial pressures that shaped his early life in the Black Canadian community that he calls Africadia, centred in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
Followed by a conversation moderated by Micheline Maylor.
