An Evening with Jael Richardson - This event has already occurred
Wednesday, September 15, 2021 7:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.
Join us for a virtual visit with Jael Richardson. She will discuss her best-selling book, Gutter Child, and her writing process.
Set in an imagined world in which the most vulnerable are forced to buy their freedom by working off their debt to society, Gutter Child uncovers a nation divided into the privileged Mainland and the policed Gutter. In this world, Elimina Dubois is one of only 100 babies taken from the Gutter and raised in the land of opportunity as part of a social experiment led by the Mainland government. But when her Mainland mother dies, Elimina finds herself alone and on journey to discover who she is and where she belongs.
Jael Richardson is the founder of the Festival for Literary Diversity (FOLD), Canada’s first festival for diverse authors and storytellers. Gutter Child is her debut novel.
Registration is required to access our virtual meeting space on Zoom. A staff member will contact you the day of the event with information on how to access the Zoom meeting. This session will be recorded.
