The Festival is off to a strong start, our programming well under way with our first day of events almost finished.
Today we had the pleasure of conducting a few not-too-formal interviews, as part of our live interview series, with stellar authors Kate Harris, Ondjaki, Lisa Moore, Iain Reid and Kenneth Oppel, as well as our own wonderful Artistic Director, Leslie Hurtig.
The Festival will host more than 80 events this month, and we want to make it easy for you to attend as many as possible.
The Vancouver Writers Fest is thrilled to announce our series of Facebook Live Author Interviews.
Every hour on the hour, between 10AM-5PM (with a few special exceptions), we’ll sit down with your favourite Writers Fest authors in the wonderful Iron Dog Books mobile bookstore for 15 minutes of questions.
Our intern Jaiden Dembo recommends these epic authors who live life on the wild side:

We’re pleased to support The Fictionals for a wonderful comedy event happening Thursday, October 18th at 8PM.
Words in Motion is the crossover event we’ve been waiting for—improv comedy and literature collide in what will be an epic and hilarious performance inspired by audience suggestions, classic lit, and modern bookshelf hits.
Our intern Trenton Galozo shares which events are perfect for Netflix binge-watchers.
