Symposium on Canadian Fiction in Which Canadian Authors Express Their Preferences

Symposium on Canadian Fiction in Which Canadian Authors Express Their Preferences is a round table that appeared in the Manitoba Free Press on 8 December 1924. It polls a large number of popular authors – including Bliss Carman, Madge Macbeth, Isabel Ecclestone Mackay, William Arthur Deacon, Frederick Philip Grove, Nellie L. McClung, and Marian Keith – and appeared with a descriptive subhead: “What They Have Written in Reply to the Question: ‘What Are Your Three Favorite Novels by Canadian Writers?’ – Their Answers Show a Very Interesting Variety of Opinion and from Them Our Readers Can Compile a Useful Reference List.” L.M. Montgomery’s response appears in The L.M. Montgomery Reader, Volume 1: A Life in Print.
