Join us for a panel discussion exploring spirits and ghosts in Asia with Leanne Dunic as she debuts her novel To Love the Coming End. She will be joined by Zack Davisson, translator and author of Yurei: The Japanese Ghost, and Jane Wong, poet and author of Overpour.
About the book
In this teeming lyrical novel, love is remembered as a jungle of flora and fauna cleaved by tectonic shock and human fault. Our restless narrator stirs between Singapore, Japan, and British Columbia with prose that engulfs like radioactive mist. Personal, geographic, political, and cultural environments take on one another's qualities, culminating in the Tohoku earthquake that shatters Japan.
