This talk was originally broadcast live on November 8, catch up on the recording!

Susan Orlean is one of the great non-fiction storytellers of our time—a beloved New Yorker staff writer whose bestselling books include The Library Book, Rin Tin Tin and The Orchid Thief, which was made into the Academy Award–winning film Adaptation. Orlean joins us to discuss her latest collection of stories, On Animals, a lifetime of musings, meditations, and in-depth profiles about the animal world. As she shares her favourite stories about the household pets we dote on, the animals that we eat and the wild creatures who could eat us for dinner, she’ll offer a globe-spanning survey, equal parts delightful and profound, of the meaningful cross-species connections that grace our collective existence.

In conversation with Sarah Fulford, Editor in Chief of Toronto Life.

Susan Orlean's latest book is available to purchase nationwide via our partners at Indigo.

Event presented in partnership with Simon & Schuster Canada and Indigo.
