The Embassy of Canada's E.H. Norman Speaker Series introduces Canada and showcases Canadian perspectives through guest lectures from academics, authors, and artists.
A noteworthy feature of Canadian literature is the active involvement of women writers such as Alice Munro, winner of the 2013 Nobel Prize for literature, and Margaret Atwood, who has a large following in Japan. This dialogue between Canadian and Japanese women writers will focus on that involvement, exploring women writers' identity, the special features of feminist literature, and its prospects for the future. We encourage you to join us at this forum conducted in cooperation with the Women Writers Committee of the Japan PEN Club.
Please join us for what promises to be a very interesting event.
