AUTHOR READINGS: Johanna Skibsrud and Scaachi Koul

Scotiabank Giller Prize-winning author of The Sentimentalists (2009), Johanna Skibsrud reads from her new collection of short stories, Tiger, Tiger (2018).  The fourteen stories in Tiger, Tiger take readers from the Paradise Valley Senior Centre parking lot all the way to Mars and examines the contradictions of life along the way. An astounding array of characters come up against the challenges of existence–both mundane and extraordinary–and their experiences never fail to surprise and delight.
