October 20, 2012, 12:00 AM EDT
The Vancouver Writers Fest turns reading into a community experience, bringing people together to share thoughts, explore ideas, and witness brilliant conversations. For the past 25 years, the Writers Fest has enriched imaginations and the culture of Vancouver and has touched and inspired thousands of lives by creating a forum for authors to connect with readers and by offering a vibrant exchange of ideas and conversation. The Festival is a celebration of story, told by authors, poets, spoken word performers, and graphic novelists.
On the 40th anniversary of the publication of Margaret Atwood’s Survival, six significant voices from the Canadian literary scene – Atwood, Dionne Brand, Louise Dennys, Graeme Gibson, Emily Schultz and Aritha Van Herk – talk about the flowering of Canadian literature, which has been cause for national pride.
