Vancouver writers festival, library launch reading series

The Vancouver International Writers Festival has teamed up with the Vancouver Public Library to offer Incite, a new reading series set to launch later this month.

The bimonthly events will feature a variety of Canadian and international writers, and are open to the public free of charge. In a statement released earlier today, VIWF artistic director Hal Wake describes the program as:

an exploration of books and ideas […] in a variety of formats.  It will be a lot like what people experience at the Writers Festival on Granville Island every October ” there’ll be engaging conversations, panel discussions, on-stage interviews, and performances with authors who are writing fiction, non-fiction, poetry, memoir, graphic novels ” the whole spectrum.

Andrew Pyper, Amber Dawn, and Michael Christie will take part in the first event on Jan. 26.
