68 Vancouver 125 Legacy Books

Sunday, October 23, 2011 - 4:00pm
Waterfront Theatre

Vancouver’s 125th Birthday Party continues and this time we are celebrating our city’s literature and the republication of 10 lost Vancouver literary gems, ranging from the classic oral history of Daphne Marlatt and Carole Itter's Opening Doors to Vancouver's most notorious unsolved murder mystery in Edward Starkins' Who Killed Janet Smith? Come armed with your “Best of VanLit” lists as host Michael Turner talks with Vancouver literary devotees Anakana Scofield, Stephen Osbourne, Dan Francis and Jean Barman about what makes our city’s literature great and what titles you must have on your shelf.

Tickets are still available and can be purchased at the door 45 minutes before the event begins.

A reception at The Dockside Lounge at the Granville Island Hotel to follow.
