I find it ironic that in a video promoting a Writers’ festival, they somehow managed to misspell ‘Annually’ as ‘Anually’!
Check out the official website of the fest for all the details and events here – writersfest.bc.ca. A few of the famous authors coming to Vancouver this month and next (outside of the festival proper) include Michael Moore (Dude, Where’s My Country?), David Sedaris (Me Talk Pretty One Day), Wade Davis (Into the Silence), Michael Ondaatje (The English Patient), Chuck Palahniuk (Fight Club), and Anthony Bourdain (Kitchen Confidential). At the festival, look out for Esi Edugyan (local author from Victoria and Man Booker Prize finalist this year for Half Blood Blues). Also, Ian Rankin, Wayne Johnston, Jen Sookfong Lee, John Vaillant, Timothy Taylor, Miriam Toews, Nino Ricci, Guy Vanderhaeghe, Lev Grossman, and many others.
