The Wheeler Centre presents The Alt Write

The Wheeler Centre presents The Alt Write

ONE NIGHT ONLY: May 22 2017

Our favourite writers move us and inspire us: our imaginations, our humanity, our understanding of the world. But sometimes their writerly purpose can carry a little more bite. What is the role for the writer as shit-stirrer and agitator, provocateur and agent for change?

For this all-star panel with host Michael Williams, our panellists - Roxane Gay, John Safran, George Saunders and Brit Bennett - will discuss how they push against platitude, prejudice and power in their writing.

What, if anything, is the responsibility of the writer? Is it to change minds? Or even the world? Join us for this timely discussion with a stellar line-up of intrepid and original thinkers.

Running times:
Start - 7:30pm
Finish - 9:00pm

Please note, times are approximate and subject to change.
