Past Recordings

Titans of Canadian Theatre

Ebullient, enlightened and engaging: Bill Richardson in conversation with Tomson Highway and Michel Tremblay, two titans of Canadian theatre.

Margaret MacMillan

Esteemed historian, Officer of the Order of Canada, and award-winning author, Margaret MacMillan, discusses her latest book The War that Ended Peace, an examination of the First World War, how it could have been avoided and why it wasn’t.

Eleanor Catton

After Eleanor Catton won the Man Booker Prize for fiction in October 2013, the Vancouver Writers Fest added a special event with her. We think you will be impressed by her intelligence, ease, charm and great stories.

Michael Chabon

Sometimes, the setting for a novel by a Pulitzer Prize-winning author is their own life’s backdrop.
