North Shore Writers Festival — The Best Kind of People with Zoe Whittall and Shaena Lambert 3:45-5:00pm | City Hall Atrium

The North Shore Writers Festival is coming up, April 7th and 8th — with some really wonderful programming and discussions. On Saturday, April 8 I will have the great pleasure of interviewing Zoe Whittall onstage about her acclaimed, Giller shortlisted novel, The Best Kind of People.  Here is what the program says…

  • Join Scotiabank Giller Prize finalist Zoe Whittall in conversation with Canadian novelist Shaena Lambert. Whittall will discuss not only the writing experience behind her highly acclaimed novel The Best Kind of People, but also the compelling themes and characters that are embedded within her story.What if someone you trusted was accused of the unthinkable?George Woodbury, an affable teacher and beloved husband and father, is arrested for sexual impropriety at a prestigious prep school. His wife, Joan, vaults between denial and rage as the community she loved turns on her. Their daughter, Sadie, a popular over-achieving high school senior, becomes a social pariah. Their son, Andrew, assists in his father’s defense, while wrestling with his own unhappy memories of his teen years. A local author tries to exploit their story, while an unlikely men’s rights activist attempts to get Sadie onside their cause. With George locked up, how do the members of his family pick up the pieces and keep living their lives? How do they defend someone they love while wrestling with the possibility of his guilt?With exquisite emotional precision, award-winning author Zoe Whittall explores issues of loyalty, truth, and the meaning of happiness through the lens of an all-American family on the brink of collapse.
