In the heart of Vancouver, on Granville Island as well as at three off-island venues, lies an outstanding opportunity for readers and writers to immerse themselves in writerly conversations about books.
A massive number of authors attend this festival. Events are organized by genre.
Participants can choose from the following:
Adventure, Can Lit, Current Affairs, Film & TV, Feminism, Humour, Indigenous, International Authors, Interviews, Memoir, Non Fiction, On Writing, Performances, Poetry, Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Thriller/Crime and Youth.
School groups are encouraged and workshops are organized specifically for youth. Those events look fascinating.
If I had the opportunity to go, I would listen to:
Miriam Toews – internationally celebrated award-winning author, who always delivers poignant, personal writing.
Jodi Picoult – best selling author of twenty-five books who tackles provocative current issues.
Kate Atkinson – a master of many genres, evoking reflection, passion and intrigue.
Check it out. There’s something for everyone! Has anyone ever attended this event? Does it appeal to you?
