Eleanor Wachtel has been host of CBC Radio’s Writers & Company since it began in 1990. To commemorate the show’s 25-year anniversary, Wachtel presents The Best of Writers & Company: conversations with legendary authors like Jonathan Franzen, Alice Munro and J.M. Coetzee. She shares some of the insights gleaned from talking with the world’s best writers: insights on the writing life, literary fame, the delight in words, tracking down elusive authors and opening up the reticent. Wachtel’s intimate conversations with authors are legendary and now the tables are turned as she’s answering the questions. Expect an evening of wit, intelligence and grace from this eight-time honorary degree holder whose signature characteristic is curiosity.

Although this event is sold out, some tickets may be available for purchase at the door.
