The award-winning Mennonite Canadian novelist, author of Women Talking and A Complicated Kindness, discusses her work with Hartley Burr Alexander Chair in the Humanities Myriam J. A. Chancy, interim director of the Humanities Institute.

Based on real events and told through the “minutes” of the women’s all-female symposium, Toews’s masterful novel uses wry, politically engaged humor to relate this tale of women claiming their own power to decide.

Miriam Toews is the author of six previous bestselling novels: All My Puny SorrowsSummer of My Amazing Luck, A Boy of Good Breeding, A Complicated Kindness, The Flying Troutmans, and Irma Voth, and one work of nonfiction, Swing Low: A Life. She is winner of the Governor General’s Award for Fiction, the Libris Award for Fiction Book of the Year, the Rogers Writers’ Trust Fiction Prize, and the Writers’ Trust Engel/Findley Award. She lives in Toronto.

Presented in partnership with the Scripps Presents, the Department of Feminist, Gender, and Sexuality Studies, and the Writing Program.
