JLF 2020 - Nov 27

Torkin Manes is proud to partner once again with JLF Toronto

Torkin Manes is proud to partner once again with JLF Toronto and is pleased to be a presenting sponsor this year for Crossover Narratives on Saturday, November 28 at 10:30 a.m. EST. 

The digital age is transforming how readers and audiences interpret and consume literary fiction. Ann Cleeves, Anosh Irani, Emma Donoghue, and Devyani Saltzman discuss the creative collaborations that enable the movement from script to screen and how text-driven narratives get transformed into dynamic scripts and immersive moving images.

Bestselling author Ann Cleeves’ Vera Stanhope series has been dramatized onscreen as Vera and the Jimmy Perez novels as the series Shetland. Celebrated novelist and playwright Anosh Irani’s one-man show, Buffoon, won the 2020 Dora Mavor Moore Award for Outstanding New Play, and his latest book is titled Translated from the Gibberish: Seven Stories and One Half Truth. Award-winning author Emma Donoghue’s book Room has been adapted into a movie and a play. Writer and curator Devyani Saltzman latest book is Shooting Water: A Memoir of Second Chances, Family, and Filmmaking. She is currently the Director of Public Programming at the Art Gallery of Ontario.

In 2019, Teamwork Arts, producer of the Jaipur Literature Festival, brought to Canada, a celebration of literature and the power of dialogue. JLF Toronto will continue to build on the success of last year’s inaugural edition with a virtual offering for 2020 reinforcing South Asia’s unique literary heritage while infusing it with flavours true to the proud literary legacy of Canada.

From November 27 – 29, JLF Toronto 2020, will showcase Canadian talent and embrace international voices. While we cannot gather in person, all else remains the same – the gift of camaraderie, the caravan of ideas and the magic of conversation.

We invite you to join JLF Toronto 2020 - to connect, escape and indulge.
