This panel discussion will talk to the designers behind award-winning cover art design, an oft-obscure group that create the pictures on the covers of books we buy and love. They will give viewers a behind-the-scenes glimpse into a sometimes-misunderstood art form.
Populating the January panel are designers Kelly Hill (Fight Night by Miriam Toews), Jack Smyth (The Listeners by Jordan Tannahill), Laura Boyle (The Son of the House by Cheluchi Onyemelukwe-Onuobia) and Kelly Blair (What Strange Paradise by Omar El Akkad, 2021 Scotiabank Giller Prize winner).
Lisa Jager, the designer behind Ian William’s Scotiabank Giller Prize-winning novel, Reproduction will moderate the panel.
