Scotiabank Giller Prize Between the Pages

October 28, 2019 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm


Without fail, the winner of the annual Scotiabank Giller Prize becomes a household name in Canada. Those shortlisted also step into the proverbial hall of CanLit fame, their titles splashed across best-of lists at year end for good reason. No wonder the shortlist is a staple of many bibliophiles’ reading lists. Our annual on-stage interview with finalists of the Scotiabank Giller Prize kicks off the Festival. Hear about the creative processes, anticipations and camaraderie between incredible creatives before the winner is announced on November 18th.

Presented in partnership with the Scotiabank Giller Prize.

The venue is wheelchair accessible and an American Sign Language (ASL) interpreter will be present.
