Went to a conference for the Humanities and Social Sciences on March 26, 2011.
There to take photos of this event. More info check out this site.
I was lucky to see Johanna Skibsrud and Kim Thúy.
Both are authors.
Johanna won the 2010 Giller Prize for her novel The Sentimentalists
Kim won the 2010 Governor General’s Literary Awards for her French novel Ru. (The English version will be out in 2012 by Random House).
It was a pretty interesting discussion.
Here are the photos.
