Malahat Review: Creative Nonfiction & Toshiro Saito

Join authors David Leach, M. A. C. Farrant, George Sipos, and Christin Geall as they reveal the best (and the worst) of the misunderstood genre of creative nonfiction on Saturday, May 28, from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm in the Central Meeting Room,
Greater Victoria Public Library, 735 Broughton.

The rising popularity of creative nonfiction has opened new doors for readers and writers of stories based in fact. 
Enhanced by dramatic scenes, dialogue, and characterization, contemporary creative nonfiction can include the personal essay, memoir, travel writing, historical accounts, and biography. 
It can enlighten and educate through vivid storytelling and fresh insight. 

But do some authors bend the truth? 
How "creative" can nonfiction be?

There's a Winnipeg connection to the Spring 2011 issue of The Malahat Review...
It contains an excerpt of the memoir At War's End in Indonesia which was written by Winnipeg author Sally Ito's grandfather, Toshiro Saito.
