TIFA presents We Come Back Together: Olga Ravn.

“We come back together, only to fall apart.” TIFA is proud to present a new collection of writing penned by some of the world’s most distinctive voices. The Festival invited 11 authors to respond to a phrase that encapsulates elements of life in 2022. Join daily to hear authors read their newly commissioned work as part of our free, outdoor programming.

This event features author Olga Ravn, one of Denmark’s most celebrated contemporary authors, known for her masterful way of combining several genres. Her most recent novel The Employees was a finalist for the 2021 International Booker Prize.

The Ravn reading will be followed by a PEN Canada Writers in Prison Reading; you’ll hear Festival authors perform free readings of short prose and verse written by imprisoned writers from around the world including journalists, literary critics, filmmakers and a Nobel peace laureate. Curated in partnership with PEN Canada, an organization that defends freedom of expression and promotes global community through literature.

This is a free outdoor event that will be held in the Word Lab (Tent A). Find the venue on the #FestofAuthors22 map here.

Olga Ravn appears as part of Nordic Bridges 2022. Presented with support from the Danish Arts Foundation.
