Salman Rushdie



Avon Theatre
Saturday, October 22
10:30 a.m. to noon

From the plays of Shakespeare and Molière to the novels of today, the telling of stories reveals a fundamental human need: to seek essential truths about our shared experience through the exercise of the creative imagination. Award-winning author Salman Rushdie examines and celebrates that age-old impulse in the two decades’ worth of essays, criticism and speeches that are now gathered together in his latest book, Languages of Truth. In this exclusive interview, Mr. Rushdie is joined by acclaimed journalist and CBC Ideas host Nahlah Ayed for an intimate conversation about his life and work. Everyone attending this event will receive a copy of Languages of Truth signed by the author.
