Since its inception 20 years ago, the New Face of Fiction program has brought sensational first-time fiction authors to Canadians. Now shepherded by Penguin Random House, the program has also played a significant role in launching the careers of writers who have collectively won 46 literary awards and sold more than 1.8 million books in Canada. This celebratory event will welcome two authors whose debut novels were part of the series—Yann Martel and Gail Anderson-Dargatz—alongside “new face” Lynne Kutsukake.The authors talk about learning their craft, what it means when editors and publishers show that degree of faith in their work and the astounding effect that such a program has had on so many.

Presented by Penguin Random House.
