Thank you for tuning in to the first episode of our new series The Superfan Showcase - a co creation and partnership between Wordfest and the amazing team at PEN Canada. The Superfan Showcase will enable all of us to eavesdrop on the most inspiring Canadians as they engage in in-depth and wide ranging conversation with their favorite authors, and The Right Honorable Adrienne Clarkson in conversation with acclaimed author Colm Tóibín certainly set the bar. Re-watch their soul-nurturing discussion about Ireland, music and literature, and a deep dive into some of their favourite writers, among them Thomas Mann, the subject of Tóibín’s new novel The Magician here. Or subscribe to Imagine On Air On Demand to access our growing library of past shows.
