Beirut, Montreal, the World: A Conversation with Lebanese Canadian Novelist Rawi Hage

Rawi Hage immigrated to North America in 1984 during the Lebanese Civil War. Having studied and worked in photography, Hage first considered novel writing after receiving praise on the written descriptions to accompany his photographic work. Published in 2006, his début novel De Niro's Game was awarded the 2008 International IMPAC Dublin Literary Award. His two subsequent novels, Cockroach in 2008 and Carnival in 2012, have also been nominated for various Canadian literary awards, the former having been among the finalists in CBC's 2014 Canada Reads competition. His novels are peopled with outsiders and deal with themes of transience, violence, and life in the modern city.

This event is free and open to all. Registration is not required.
