Literary Dinner with Alice Zorn
Five Roses by Alice Zorn is an engrossing story of the complicated relationships and histories between four women living, loving, and working in Pointe St Charles, a working-class neighbourhood in Montreal. The city of Montreal itself is a character in Five Roses, and Zorn explores the gentrification of the Pointe St Charles neighbourhood as a backdrop to the turmoil—and, ultimately, growth—affecting her main characters. Now, menu items such as cretons and pouding chomeur have become trendy in an area of the city where they were once a necessity, but have nevertheless been staples for well over a century. Join Alice Zorn for a literary dinner that pays homage to the culinary history of working-class Montreal and Quebec with the following menu:
 
Smoked and steamed salmon rillettes, with celeriac, apple, and baguette
Pea soup “aux habitants
Tourtière, with red pepper chutney and roasted Brussels sprouts
Pouding Chômeur, with spiced ice milk
Wine pairings included (15oz)
Revel coffee included
 
Alice Zorn is the author of Arrhythmia and a book of short fiction, Ruins & Relics, which was a finalist for the 2009 Quebec Writers’ Federation First Book Prize. She has twice placed first in Prairie Fire’s Fiction Contest. Her novel Five Roses is a novel about overcoming the emotional fallout of a shattering loss. Fara, Maddy, and Rose’s lives intersect in Pointe St-Charles, Montreal, where a backdrop of gentrification mirrors the traumas that haunt these women, as well as their search for new bonds in place of their families who were destroyed.
