Join us for an evening with celebrated U of A alumna and author Suzette Mayr, '92 MA. Suzette’s most recent novel, The Sleeping Car Porter, was the winner of the 2022 Scotiabank Giller Prize. It was the first LGBTQ-themed novel to ever win the Giller Prize and Mayr is also the first LGBTQ-identified writer to win. Suzette will be accompanied by Department of English and Film Studies Assistant Lecturer Garrett L. Faulkner for a conversation covering a wide range of literary topics. Stick around afterwards for a reception and the chance to get a copy of your book signed by the author.
