2015 PIBO Fundraiser: An Evening with Lawrence Hill


Margaret Atwood and PIBO Present An Evening with Lawrence Hill

We are excited to announce that once again, Margaret Atwood will host the PIBO Windsor fundraiser, bringing as her guest Lawrence Hill.

Lawrence Hill is the author of nine books, including The Book of Negroes, an international bestseller and winner of various awards including The Commonwealth Writers’ Prize and the English and French Canadian versions of CBC Radio’s Canada Reads. He travelled across Canada to deliver the 2013 Massey Lectures, based on his non-fiction book Blood: The Stuff of Life (House of Anansi Press). He is finishing a new novel and co-wrote the adaptation for a six-part television miniseries of The Book of Negroes, which was filmed in South Africa and Nova Scotia and aired in early 2015 on CBC in Canada and on BET in the USA. He volunteers with Crossroads International, Book Clubs for Inmates, and with the Black Loyalist Heritage Society, and lives in Hamilton, Ontario. www.lawrencehill.com and www.facebook.com/LawrenceHillAuthor
