The Cabot Trail Writers Festival in partnership with the Writers’ Federation of Nova Scotia is pleased to present a free Zoom panel featuring two of Canada's most exciting literary voice.
Moderator Jared Bland will join Omar El Akkad (Giller Prize–winning author of What Strange Paradise) and Ivan Coyote (whose thirteen books include Care Of: Letters, Connections and Cures and Tomboy Survival Guide) in a warm and wide-ranging chat about their work and influences.
In September, 2022, Hurricane Fiona landed on Cape Breton the same weekend as the scheduled Cabot Trail Writers Festival, forcing the cancellation of all our event plans, including appearances by Ivan Coyote and Omar El Akkad. While we can’t wait to welcome these two magnificent writers to the island at a future festival, in the meantime we’re delighted to welcome them to our screens for this very special online event. Advanced registration required.
