September 27, 2012

Susan Swan, Toronto Reference Library, 7:00 p.m. – The Western Light, interviewed by  Elizabeth Ruth

***

***

This event has special meaning for me since I have a personal connection with Susan Swan. She was my prose fiction professor at York University during my studies in Creative Writing! And so, I’m quite pleased to see that she’s created another work of fiction after her popular books, The Wives of Bath and What Cassanova Told Me! If you have an opportunity, go and see Susan. She’s a wonderful writer and a genuine individual who loves the writing craft.
