Novelist, journalist and Governor-General award-winning biographer Charles Foran will make a special appearance next week at StoryFest.
Author of the much-lauded Mordecai: The Life & Times, Foran will talk about Mordecai Richler and also touch on the subject of his most recent book, Maurice Richard, and his iconic role in the emergence of a strong Quebec. From 2011 to just last month as president of PEN Canada (campaigning on behalf of writers around the world who are persecuted, imprisoned and exiled for exercising their right to freedom of expression), Foran lived in China in 1989/90 and witnessed the democracy movement that culminated in the Tiananmen Square massacre. His visit promises to be an absorbing and fascinating evening.
Charles Foran will appear at Hudson Village Theatre on Tuesday, October 15 at 7.30 p.m. Tickets: $10 for a special group rate for Hudson Historical Society Members.
