Susan Crean is an established author of non-fiction who has explored through her research and writing, various aspects of Canadian art, culture and society.
Her creative work and her community development role with writers organizations, and for author rights, is highly regarded by her peers. Her books have been nominated for distinctions, and some have received literary awards.
Susan is at once from the East and the West Coast as she switches between Toronto and Vancouver every decade or so. At this time, she is living in Toronto and visiting Vancouver where she is a writer In Residence at the Historic Joy Kogawa House.
From Kogawa House this fall, other than working on her current writing project, Susan offers skills-development workshops for writers, and hosts ‘Writing for social change’, an inspiring series of weekly readings and discussions.
Susan is also working on a book about Toronto through a participative project called ‘What is Toronto’. View its web page: http://whatistoronto.ca/
At Surrey Muse on Nov 25, Susan will read from her published and unpublished work. We are delighted to have her at Room 418 – City Centre branch of Surrey Public Library.
