      On January 20, Ontario author Jael Richardson will take part in the Incite reading series, presented by the Vancouver Writers Fest and the Vancouver Public Library.

      Richardson will discuss her new novel, Gutter Child, in conversation with the Globe and Mail’s West Coast arts correspondent, Marsha Lederman.

      "This will be an evening in appreciation of the compelling, oftentimes harrowing power of the dystopian novel," reads the event info, "and the real-world devastations it manifests and deconstructs. Called 'cinematic and triumphant' and a novel of 'unquenchable hope', Richardson’s Gutter Child is a testament to our innate humanity in dark times, and the will of our spirits to never truly be vanquished. Join us for a rallying and extraordinary affair."

      The event takes place at 7 p.m. Pacific time, it's free, and you can register here.
