25th Anniversary Changemakers Speakers Series: Esi Edugyan
Join President Philip Steenkamp as he hosts our 25th Anniversary Changemakers Speakers Series.
On May 6, 2021, we welcome Victoria-based Esi Edugyan, who writes richly imagined and impeccably researched stories that illuminate complicated truths about race and belonging. The first Black woman to win the Scotiabank Giller Prize, Edugyan grew up the child of immigrant Ghanian parents in Calgary, AB. Washington Black was named one of the best books of the year by The New York Times and was a finalist for the Man Booker Prize. Edugyan says of her book: “It’s about how do you try to live in the world when everything you know has been blood and violence and… you’re in a world that rejects you.”
