Event #9: In A Dark Place – Sunday, March 13, 4:00 to 5:00 pm
Claudine is a writer, teacher and photographer. She will be making her first book tour out west to discuss her debut novel, ‘Captive’. CBC recently ranked Captive #2 out of 10 terrifying Canadian books. In the spirit of Emma Donahue’s international bestseller Room, Captive throws readers into the mind of a woman who wakes to find herself in a petrifying and surreal situation – confined in a small grey room and she has no idea why she is there. Everything hinges on Dumont’s ability to make you feel Emma’s confusion, panic and anger … and that’s exactly what she does, aided by David Scott’s excellent translation…Montreal Gazette.
