Louise Hare This Lovely City Author Events

Toronto International Festival of Authors

October 26th 5pm EDT – FREE

Historical fiction writers Janie Chang and Louise Hare come together for a compelling conversation about love and sacrifice in their latest books. In The Library of Legends, Chang takes us back to 1937 China, where unexpected bonds yield profound consequences, as Japanese bombs fall from the sky. Hare’s debut, This Lovely City, introduces us to a Jamaican immigrant living in postwar London, whose terrible discovery triggers a plight for redemption and search for hope. Join us for this pre-recorded conversation, and uncover the stories beyond the pages of these fascinating tales.
