Pivot’s Year Opener with Guy Gavriel Kay, Mia Grace Kim and Michael Prior

Wednesday, January 28, 2015 - 8:00pm

Where

The Press Club

Details

Pivot’s year openers have a long history of large crowds and large times. We think we have put together an interesting bill this time and one that will continue those traditions. Up and coming playwright, personal essayist and author Mia Grace Kim is joined by twenty-something wunderkind poet Michael Prior. And then we add in a bestseller, as Guy Gavriel Kay is one of the country's most successful novelists and a recent addition to the Order of Canada.
