Lunch & Keynote: Alice Munro Country

This talk will take up the crucial significance of  Wingham and Huron County in Munro’s imagination. More than most writers, Munro’s Home Place (Wright Morris’s phrase, she acknowledges) — its details, its textures, its mores,  its landscapes, and its geology — is key to her accomplishment.   Tracing this from her early work  on, and detailing the importance of her 1973-75 return to Ontario and Huron County from British Columbia — I will try to define her creation of  “Alice Munro Country.” 

BROWN BAG LUNCH included:  Croissant with Metzger's ham, Pine River Havarti and Beer Mustard.  Chocolate and Salted Caramel Cupcake.  Grape Kombuca.    Gluten-free and Vegetarian Options available.  Lunches prepared by Cait's Kitchen. Please advise of any dietary restrictions when you purchase tickets.
