Russell Smith at Incite in Vancouver

Russell Smith is the author of seven works of fiction. A well-know journalist and cultural commentator, he has been a CBC radio host and remains a Globe & Mail columnist. He lives and writes in Toronto. His new book is Confidence.

Confidence
In Russell Smith’s darkly brilliant new collection of short stories, the reader will be introduced to ecstasy-taking PhD students; financial traders desperate for husbands; owners of failing sex stores; violent and unremovable tenants; aggressive raccoons; seedy massage parlours; experimental filmmakers who record every second of their day; wives who blog insults directed at their husbands. Every character has a secret of some kind.

Deni Béchard at Ottawa Writers Festival

Join us in welcoming two remarkable writers whose journeys into the natural world inspire us to explore what wilderness means to us.

When acclaimed author Deni Béchard learned of the last living bonobos—matriarchal great apes which are, alongside chimpanzees, our closest relatives—he was astonished. How could we accept the disappearance of this majestic species, along with the rainforest it calls home? Part polemic, part travelogue, part natural history, The Last Bonobo: A Journey into the Congo offers a moving story of how a few committed people can affect great and lasting change, while pointing out a path that may allow us to emulate them.

Russell Smith at Ottawa Writers Festival

Join us for a celebration of creativity—a taste of three exceptional books, a conversation with three talented authors and three specially commissioned songs based on their work by HILTOTRONS front-man Mike Dubue.

In Russell Smith’s darkly brilliant new collection of short stories Confidence, the reader will be introduced to ecstasy-taking PhD students; financial traders desperate for husbands; owners of failing sex stores; violent and unremovable tenants; aggressive raccoons; seedy massage parlours; experimental filmmakers who record every second of their day; wives who blog insults directed at their husbands.
