Joseph Boyden

Novelist and short-story writer of Irish, Scottish and Métis descent, Joseph Boyden grew up in Willowdale, Ontario in the ’70s and now divides his time between Northern Ontario and Louisiana, where he teaches Canadian literature and creative writing at the University of New Orleans.

The focus of Boyden’s writing has been on the historical and contemporary experience of the First Nations peoples of Northern Ontario. Boyden’s first novel, Three Day Road, won many awards, among them the Rogers Writers’ Trust Fiction Prize, the CBA Libris Fiction Book of the Year Award, and was shortlisted for the Governor General’s Award for Fiction.

The Orenda

His second novel, Through Black Spruce, was awarded the Scotiabank Giller Prize and named the Canadian Booksellers Association Fiction Book of the Year; it also earned him the CBA’s Author of the Year Award.

His most recent novel, The Orenda, won Canada Reads and was nominated for the Scotiabank Giller Prize and the Governor General’s Award for Fiction.

Diana Davidson’s debut novel Pilgrimage, set on a Métis settlement in the 1890s, was published last year. It was shortlisted for the 2014 Alberta Readers’ Choice Awards.

Discover the power of literature and storytelling as award-winning author, Yann Martel discusses his book, and subsequent Oscar-winning movie, Life of Pi, his latest novel, Beatrice and Virgil, as well as his letter writing campaign to Stephen Harper.

STARFest Facts

Life of Pi

Yann Martel was born in Spain of peripatetic French-Canadian parents. He grew up in Alaska, British Columbia, Costa Rica, France, Ontario and Mexico, and has continued travelling as an adult. After studying philosophy and while doing odd jobs – tree planter, dishwasher, security guard – he began to write. His first book, The Facts Behind the Helsinki Roccamatios, was a short story collection which won the Journey Prize; his second novel, Self, was a fictional autobiography.

Life of Pi, adapted as a play and later for film, was shortlisted for a Governor General’s Award and won the Man Booker Prize for Fiction. The story of an Indian teenager stranded in the middle of the Pacific Ocean with a tiger and other animals was a resounding success, making Martel an internationally recognized author.

Martel’s third novel, Beatrice and Virgil, was published in 2010. His most recent work is 101 Letters to a Prime Minister: The Complete Letters to Stephen Harper.
