<David Cronenberg © 2014 by R.A.Lucas> (October 14, 2014 - Toronto, ON) While far from a recluse, it is rare to see David Cronenberg in a public setting. It seems as if he has never sought the attention of the press and most would argue he has never needed to. Now with a new direction in his famed career, David Cronenberg the author will appear on stage in conversation about his new book, Consumed. At PEN Canada’s Benefit, which takes place on Thursday, October 23, the opening night of the International Festival of Authors, philosopher Mark Kingwell will discuss how these themes relate to Cronenberg’s decades-long engagement with writers like J.G. Ballard, William S. Burroughs and Vladimir Nabokov.Arrow
