IFOA 2010: Richard Ford expresses himself

Tonight (Wednesday), author Richard Ford will be in Toronto for the annual Pen Canada benefit, the event that kicks off the 2010 International Festival of Authors.

Ford's forthcoming novel Canada -- a story "of revenge and violent retribution set on the Saskatchewan prairie, in the early 1960s," says, Ecco, his publisher -- formalizes his well-known fondness for this country. He will be in conversation with Writer & Company's Eleanor Wachtel. Mark Kingwell will host.

Proceeds from this event go to PEN Canada. PEN Canada operates a number of programs, including "Free Expression in Canada."
