Chris Cleave: Everyone Brave is Forgiven

Presented by Wordfest, this event will be held in the Calgary Public Library's John Dutton theatre.

The breathtaking new novel set during the Blitz by the bestselling and critically acclaimed author of the reader and bookseller favourite, Little Bee.

As World War Two begins, Mary--a newly qualified teacher in London, left behind to teach the few children not evacuated--meets Tom, a school official. They quickly fall in love, but this is not a simple love story. . . . Moving from Blitz-torn London to the Siege of Malta, this is an epic story of love, loss, prejudice and incredible courage.

This is a ticketed event presented by Wordfest. Ticket purchasing info TBA.
