Sean Michaels

Moving between the Prohibition era of 1930s New York to the gulags of the Soviet Union, Sean Michaels’ novel Us Conductors explores the curiosity in invention, the myth of the homeland and love in a time of deep cultural change. Join Michaels for brunch as he discusses and reads from his debut novel.

Using the narrative form to explore complex subjects and difficult topics Spur’s Books and Brunch series confronts everyday truths over lox and bagels.

Admission to this event includes a light meal.

  • Series: Books and Brunch
  • General admission: $30



Spur is a national festival of politics, art and ideas and is a catalyst for change in Canada.

Through nationally relevant and locally nuanced discussions, presentations and performances, the festival seeks to spur its participants to action on issues affecting Canadians. Feisty, multi-partisan, forward-looking, and solution-driven, this national railway of ideas will provide Canada with vital new cultural infrastructure for the 21st century.

Founded in 2013, the festival has already grown from three to five Canadian cities, with plans for further expansion across the country. Produced by the Literary Review of Canada in partnership with Diaspora Dialogues, Spur prides itself on its community partnerships, cultural connections and a focus on accessibility and diversity.
