Host: Marsha Lederman
Marsha Lederman, Western Arts Correspondent for The Globe and Mail, is known for her incisive talent as a Festival moderator, year after year cutting to the heart of some of the most important works of the day. This year, globalization and the climate crisis’s past, present and future collide with a suite of authors at the top of their game: Seth Klein’s climate change manifesto A Good War re-envisions WWII mobilization tactics for Canada’s future; Shaena Lambert revels in a fictionalized account of the captivating (and largely erased) life of Germany’s first Green Party leader and feminist in Petra; Amin Maalouf traces the roots of our global divisions—and the challenges we can still rise to—in Adrift. An afternoon certain to reinvigorate your inner activist and provide roadmaps to real change, The Interviews is not to be missed.
