About the speaker:
Cordelia Strube began her writing career as a playwright for stage and radio. She turned to writing prose because she wanted unobstructed access to her audience’s imagination. She has published eight funny, powerful, sparse, cathartic and critically acclaimed novels, among them Alex & Zee, Teaching Pigs to Sing, The Barking Dog, Blind Night and Lemon.
Winner of the CBC Literary Competition and the Toronto Arts Foundation Protégé Award, she has been long-listed for the Scotia Bank/ Giller Prize, nominated for the Prix Italia, the Books in Canada First Novel Award, The ReLit, the Trillium and Governor General’s Awards. Her ninth novel Miłosz, will be published in the fall of 2012.
