Hapa-palooza Festival, spending the evening in the company of the great literary mind that is Lawrence Hill – author of The Book of Negroes and the recently released The Illegal, was fantastic! Margaret Gallagher - an award-winning CBC radio host – provided guidance throughout the evening as she sat across from Lawrence during the intimate the evening. The Q + A portion of the evening begun with a viewing of a few scenes from the CBC mini-series - The Book of Negroes. Having read the book and watched the series, it was so insightful to hear just how much input Lawrence had in the whole process, and of course, he answered for some of the cuts and changes they made to ensure a good reception from the visual audience.
