A Free Event
Celebrate 30 years and 300 books! Join Exile’s founder, acclaimed writer Barry Callaghan, and Exile’s publisher, Michael Callaghan, for an afternoon with four Exile authors as diverse as they are acclaimed: Priscila Uppal investigates the emotional and philosophical struggle fundamental to notions of being in the 21st century in her collection Ontological Necessities; Seán Virgo’s collection of stories, Begging Questions, takes an intense gaze at a universe full of malevolence as well as beauty and dreams; Janice Kulyk Keefer’s Midnight Stroll explores physical and psychic terrain of four personal moments in history; and James Bacque’s novel, Our Father’s War, explores lives on both sides of World War II.
