Changes to Event #12 and #16

We regret to announce that due to unforeseen circumstances, Conor Kerr will not be able to join this year’s poetry panel, which also features award-winning writers Jen Currin and Cecily Nicholson. Jen and Cecily will share the stage to read from some of their newest work and discuss poetry and the writing life.

Caroll Simpson, author of Alone in the Great Unknown, unfortunately also had to cancel her appearance at the festival this year. Her fellow panelists Amanda Lewis and Ellen Schwartz will still be talking about their experiences off the beaten path, tracking the giant trees of British Columbia and living as a hippie homesteader.

We hope you will choose to attend these stellar events, but if you’ve already bought tickets and you wish to receive a refund instead, please contact the festival office at (604) 885-9631 or su**********@wr*************.ca.
