Author Talk with Daniel Goodwin

The Art of Being Lewis
Sunday May 26, 1:00 pm

Daniel Goodwin is an award-winning novelist and poet. His first novel, Sons and Fathers, was published in 2014 and his first collection of poems, Catullus Soldiers, won a 2016 Vine Award for Canadian Jewish Literature. Originally from Montreal, he has lived and worked in four provinces and recently moved back with his family to Ottawa.

About the book: East Coast architect Lewis Morton has it all: loving wife and children, dream job, and a house that meets his exacting architectural standards. But after his beloved mentor dies in suspicious circumstances and Lewis gets pulled into a lawsuit that threatens to destroy his career and possibly his life, the respectable identity he has carefully constructed for himself after fleeing his Jewish childhood in Montreal begins to disintegrate. In trying to build his new future he must first come to terms with his past. Who is Lewis Morton, and who will he choose to become?
