TIFA presents Céline Huyghebaert

September 24, 2022 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

TIFA presents: Fragmentary Perceptions: Céline Huyghebaert (author of Remnants) & Auður Jónsdóttir. Moderated by Heidi Reitmaier.


The human memory is fragile, unpredictable and unreliable, yet memories are vital to both our own emotional survival and our understanding of previous generations. In this fascinating conversation, Canadian author Céline Huyghebaert and Icelandic author Auður Jónsdóttir explore exactly how fallible memories can utterly change our perceptions of the world. Huyghebaert’s Governer General’s Literary Award-winning novel Remnants questions the value of life in its duration and passing: what is left of someone who was not important enough to be archived? Jónsdóttir presents Quake, a haunting novel about a woman who comes out of a seizure only to find her toddler missing. As her patchy memory begins to return, much about her life remains terrifyingly mysterious.
