Author Event: David Chariandy on I've Been Meaning To Tell You

Hot Docs Ted Rogers Cinema

Toronto Book Launch!

David Chariandy is one of Canada's most electrifying writers, a Governor General's Award-nominated novelist whose unforgettable stories have brought fresh urgency to questions of masculinity, family, race, and identity. In this non-fiction debut and follow-up to the critically-acclaimed Brother, he builds on the tradition of Ta-Nehisi Coates's Between the World and Me and Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie's Dear Ijeawele, or a Feminist Manifesto. Written as a letter to his 13-year old daughter, I've Been Meaning to Tell You recounts Chariandy's experiences coming of age as a visible minority in Canada in an intimate and profoundly beautiful meditation on the politics of race today.

Join David Chariandy in conversation with writer and broadcaster Jael Richardson, Artistic Director of the Festival of Literary Diversity. Followed by book sale and signing.

Presented in partnership with Penguin Random House Canada. Books sold by Indigo.
