Sheila Murray: Finding Edward

12:00 PM – 1:00 PM


In her debut novel, Finding Edward, Sheila Murray tells the story of a man who moves from Jamaica to Toronto in 2012, and experiences being racialized in a new land. As he searches for his own story, he uncovers hidden parts of Canada’s Black History. 

Finding Edward has been called “one of the most penetrating dramas of Black experience in all of Canadian literature”, and it was a finalist for the 2022 Governor General's Literary Award for fiction. The book was also named one of the best works of Canadian fiction in 2022 by CBC Books, and is on the Canada Reads 2023 longlist.  

Sheila Murray will appear in conversation with literary critic Donna Bailey Nurse, author of What's A Black Critic to Do II and the editor of Revival: An Anthology of Black Canadian Writing.
