With the world facing the greatest global crisis of all time – climate change – personal and political indifference has wrought a series of unfolding complications that are altering our planet, and threatening our very existence. These stories of Climate Fiction (Cli-Fi) feature perspectives by culturally diverse Canadian writers of short fiction, science fiction, fantasy, and futurist works, and transcend traditional doomsday stories by inspiring us to overcome the bleak forecasted results of our current indifference.

The Blue Hour is a contemporary tale which manages that stunning and rare feat: telling a story of human interaction in a way that is universal,
revelatory and suspenseful.

Oblique Verdicts is a collection of poetry that lets us peek under Madame Justice’s blindfold, giving us a rare glimpse of her concerned, but very human face.

In the Days of the Cotton Wind and the Sparrow is a mystical encounter with the allegorical inhabitants of a remote civilization.  Through vivid language and imagery we are drawn into a compelling poetic odyssey, with uniquely indigenous voices that cover vast distances of human and spiritual terrain.  Rafi will read selections after the dinner.
