350 W. Georgia Street, Vancouver
The darkest time of year demands an illumination of words. Join us for our first Incite event of the year, featuring a genre-blurring poetry debut from Chantal Gibson (How She Read) alongside new collections from award-winning writers Jennica Harper (Bounce House), Alex Leslie (Vancouver for Beginners) and Hasan Namir (War/Torn). A seasonal favourite and cherished Incite tradition, Poets in Conversation has time and again kicked off the Fest’s annual programming with mirth and soul.
