The Illegal: A Meditation on Refugee Issues

Wednesday, October 7, 2015 7:00 PM EDT (UTC–04:00)

Lawrence Hill speaks about his newest novel The Illegal, including the writing process and his inspiration for the writing about the life of an elite marathoner who has fled violence in his homeland and gone into hiding as an undocumented refugee in a rich nation where he is not wanted. 

This event is sponsored by Wilfrid Laurier University and the University of Waterloo.  A reception and book signing will follow this lecture in the CIGI Campus Foyer.
