From our bedrooms to the boardroom, from battlefields to hospital waiting rooms, conflict is our constant companion. For Close to Home, Ontario Scene welcomes three acclaimed Ontario authors for a session on war, peace, and the spaces between the two.  

In her collection Welcome to the Circus, Ottawa’s RHONDA DOUGLAS offers ten strikingly original stories that explore love and escape. HELEN HUMPHREYS, winner of Rogers Writers’ Trust Fiction Prize, presents her The Evening Chorus, a brilliant, beautiful evocation of place and a natural history of both war and the human heart. And in Exceptional Circumstances, former lieutenant-governor of Ontario JAMES BARTLEMAN plots a turbulent thriller set in 1970 and based on events he witnessed first-hand.
