29 An Intimate Evening with Guy Gavriel Kay
For lovers of fantasy fiction, the name Guy Gavriel Kay is synonymous with excellence. Kay’s writing is celebrated internationally and translated into more than 25 languages. Although he prefers not to be characterized as a fantasy writer, he is the winner of the World Fantasy Award for Best Novel. He is author of more than a dozen novels, IMPAC Dublin Prize nominee and member of the Order of Canada. Using Renaissance Europe as a touchstone, his latest novel, Children of Earth and Sky, thrusts his characters into a stew of cultural and religious conflict. Kay has earned his reputation by reimagining the world as it might have been. Tonight is your only opportunity at this year’s Festival to meet this master writer who has delighted millions.
