Heritage Matters Live with Esi Edugyan - Ontario Heritage Trust

Menu

Join us for a free lecture with award-winning author Esi Edugyan and a virtual visit to Uncle Tom’s Cabin Historic Site

The Ontario Heritage Trust presents bestselling author and two-time Scotiabank Giller Prize-winner Esi Edugyan for an exclusive talk on her internationally acclaimed novel Washington Black – touching on the themes of Black heritage, identity, belonging and displacement. Two education-focused and three general-public screenings will be available.

Edugyan is the author of three works of fiction and one non-fiction. She writes richly imagined and impeccably researched stories that illuminate complicated truths about race and belonging.

In this pre-recorded event, she will provide insights on her writing process, researching history and bringing Black stories to life.

The broadcast will also include a virtual visit to Uncle Tom’s Cabin Historic Site and a question-and-answer segment with Esi Edugyan that features questions from youth and leaders from Ontario’s Black heritage community.
