The Tulane University English Department presents a double reading from Michael Ondaatje and Linda Spalding on Monday, October 28, at 6:30 p.m. Ondaatje, whose work has won the Canadian Governor General's Award for Literature four times, has authored thirteen novels and poetry collections, including The Collected Works of Billy the Kid and The English Patient, winner of the 1992 Booker Prize and later adapted into an Academy Award-winning film. His most recent novel, The Cat's Table, draws from his own biography and presents the voyage of a young boy from Sri Lanka to London. Spalding's most recent novel, The Purchase, won the Canadian Governor General's Literary Prize for Fiction and focuses on the consequences of a Quaker man's purchase of a slave, against his principles, during the early days of the republic. She is author of The Paper Wife and Who Named the Knife, short-listed for the Trillium Book Award. She has been awarded the Harbourfront Festival Prize for her contribution to the literary community in Canada. Ondaatje and Spalding co-edit the literary review magazine Brick.
The authors will sign books after the reading. This event is free and open to the Tulane community.
