Literary Journalism's Rogers Communications Chair, Ian Brown, presents his RBC Taylor Prize shortlisted book, Sixty: A Diary of My Sixty-First Year. Sixty is a wickedly honest and brutally funny account of the year in which Ian truly realized that the man in the mirror was actually... sixty. As Ian writes, "It is the age when the body begins to dominate the mind, or vice versa, when time begins to disappear and loom, but never in a good way, when you have no choice but to admit that people have stopped looking your way, and that in fact they stopped twenty years ago." Sixty is nominated for the 2016 Charles Taylor Prize. This is Ian's last year as program chair. Ian will be in conversation with Devyani Saltzman, Director of Literary Arts.
