Win ti­ckets to see au­thor Charles Fo­ran

L'Etoile - - IN OTHER WORDS -

Award-winning bio­gra­pher and no­ve­list Charles Fo­ran will make a spe­cial ap­pea­rance next week during Sto­ryFest, an an­nual li­te­ra­ry fes­ti­val being held all this month in Hud­son. And The Green­wood Centre for Li­ving His­to­ry is gi­ving away a pair of ti­ckets to see Fo­ran, the au­thor of the much-lau­ded book Mor­de­cai: The Life & Times.

Fo­ran, a no­ve­list, jour­na­list and Go­ver­nor-Ge­ne­ral award-winning bio­gra­pher will talk about Mor­de­cai Ri­chler during a Sto­ryFest Meet the Au­thor event ta­king place on Tues­day, Oct. 15, at 7.30 p.m., at the Hud­son Village Theatre

Fo­ran is al­so ex­pec­ted to touch on the sub­ject of his most recent book, Mau­rice Ri­chard, and his ico­nic role in the emer­gence of a strong Que­bec. Fo­ran has ser­ved as pre­sident of PEN Ca­na­da, a group cam­pai­gning on be­half of per­se­cu­ted, im­pri­so­ned and exi­led wri­ters around the world. He al­so li­ved in Chi­na in 1989 -1990 and wit­nes­sed the de­mo­cra­cy mo­ve­ment that culmi­na­ted in the Tia­nan­men Square mas­sacre. Sto­ryFest or­ga­ni­zers say Fo­ran’s vi­sit will be ab­sor­bing and fas­ci­na­ting. A pair of ti­ckets to see Fo­ran next week will be awar­ded to the first per­son to send an email to: ked­son@heb­dos­du­su­roit.com. Good luck!
