Patrick deWitt: The Librarianist

View descriptionShare

Known for literary masterpieces like The Sisters Brothers and French Exit, Canadian writer Patrick deWitt has been delighting readers for more than a decade.

In his latest work, The Librarianist, deWitt’s distinctive verve and humour come to the fore. His exploration of the life of retired Oregon-based librarian Bob Comet masterfully blends melancholy and comedy.

With host Marieke Hardy, deWitt delves into his expansive career and the compassion for the outcast that animates his latest novel, celebrating the extraordinary in so-called ordinary life.

This event was recorded on Thursday 29 February 2024 at The Wheeler Centre.

The official bookseller was Hill of Content Bookshop.

Featured music is ‘No One There’ by Ava Low.
