Webcast sponsored by the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre and hosted by the Creative Writing Department. Presented by the Chan Centre as part of the Beyond Words series. Multi-award winning novelist and UBC professor Steven Galloway, author of The Cellist of Sarajevo, explores magic in his newest book The Confabulist. This beautiful, suspense-filled novel uses the life and sudden death of turn-of-the-century magician and stunt performer Harry Houdini to weave a critically acclaimed tale of intrigue, love and illusion. Join Galloway for this magical (pun very much intended) evening of readings and sleight-of-hand as he is joined in performance by master magician David Gifford to examine reality and illusion, and the ways that imagination can alter what we perceive and believe. Post-show artist talk moderated by acclaimed Canadian author Miriam Toews.
