Torkin Manes is proud to partner once again with JLF Toronto 2021 and is pleased to be a presenting sponsor this year for, "The New Narratives: The Art of Immersive Storytelling" on Saturday, October 2 at 2:30 p.m. EST. 

The digital age is transforming how readers and audiences interpret and consume literary fiction. Zoe Whittall, Jean Hanff Korelitz and Shekhar Kapur discuss the evolving nature of text, script and screen narrative. In conversation with Shunali Khullar Shroff, they discuss how they create immersive narratives that reinterpret literary works. Award-winning film director and producer Shekhar Kapur has iconic films such as Elizabeth, Elizabeth: The Golden Age and Bandit Queen among many others under his creative hat. Celebrated novelist and playwright Jean Hanff Korelitz’s novel, You Should Have Known, was recently launched as an HBO limited series called The Undoing. Her latest book is The Plot. Canadian poet, novelist and TV writer Zoe Whittall, author of the recent book The Spectacular, has been a part of award-winning shows such as the Baroness Von Sketch Show and Schitt's Creek.
