StoryFest reacquaints with long-time friend/ally Linda Leith to learn more about her in a discussion about her compelling book, The Girl from Dream City: A Literary Life.
2 – 4 p.m., Sunday October 23, 2022.
James M. Fisher of the Miramichi Reader says, “…we are fortunate to have such a person as Linda Leith active in the Montreal and CanLit literary scene.” We at StoryFest are equally delighted to welcome her back to the Hudson Creative Hub, formerly St. Mary’s Church Hall.
Born in Northern Ireland, she attended schools in London, Basel, Belfast, Paris, and Montreal, graduating from the University of London, which granted her a PhD on the work of Samuel Beckett when she was twenty-four. A novelist, essayist, literary translator, and the founder of the Blue Metropolis International Literary Festival and of Linda Leith Publishing, she lives in Montreal.
