Tuesday at THIN AIR…

So you couldn’t make it to a THIN AIR event yesterday? No worries! There is a spectacular line-up of writers every day this week, and Tuesday is no exception!

Be sure to head over to Red River College’s Exchange District Campus to see Lynn Coady work her magic in front of students, staff and anyone else who stops by (11:00 a.m. – noon). Or, later this afternoon, visit Margaret Macpherson at the University of Manitoba’s St. John’s College where she reads from her new novel, Body Trade (5:30 – 6:30 p.m.).

The Carol Shields Auditorium at the Millennium Library welcomes Winnipeg-born poet Ron Charach at The Nooner (12:15 – 12:45).

At the Afternoon Books Chat (McNally Robinson, 2:30 – 3:30 p.m.), playwright Marty Chan and novelist Dimitri Nasrallah will team up to talk about the opportunities and frustrations a new country offers.

Later this afternoon, Big Ideas features Kim Anderson sharing her research into the cultural contributions of aboriginal women (Millennium Library, 4:30 – 5:30).

If you can hear in French, meet Simone Chaput and Lise Gaboury-Diallo, our featured guests at this year’s Soirée Francophile (Alliance Française, 19 h).

And finally, don’t miss the evening Mainstage presentation where tonight’s five writers – Charach, Chan, and Nisrallah, along with Sheila McClarty and WD Valgardson – consider the roots that shape who we are.
