An Evening with MG Vassanji
MG Vassanji’s work has focused on liminal states, where his characters are players in the ‘battlefield of history’. Vassanji’s many award-winning novels bring alive the angst faced being in a constant state of exile. From East Africa to Toronto, storied pasts to imagined future states, Vassanji’s work constantly questions, subverts and upturns the world as we know it.
Vassanji is the first person to win the prestigious Giller Prize twice, as well as a Commonwealth Prize and a Governor General’s award. Spend an evening at the beautiful Ismaili Centre with one of Canada’s most renowned writers as he takes us on a journey between the worlds of his rich body of work.
