Vancouver Writers Festival 2017
October 16 - October 22$10 - $35
Reimagine your World at the 30th annual Vancouver Writers Fest, October 16-22, 2017. The Festival Program, a packed schedule of readings, panels, and musical events in Granville Island venues and elsewhere, is now available online.
The 2017 Vancouver Writers Fest features 110+ authors from Canada and around the world. While it may be impossible to see them all in the span of the week, we encourage you to go outside of your comfort zone, and take a chance on some writers you may not have heard of before in addition to your favourites. This year marks not only the 30th anniversary of the Vancouver Writers Fest, but also the 12th and final one overseen by artistic director Hal Wake.
The 2017 festival will bring well-known authors like Ann Cleeves, Nicole Krauss, Witi Ihimaera, Akhil Sharma, Leanne Beatsamosake Simpson, Barbara Gowdy and many more. As a special not to be missed event, legendary author Margaret Atwood will discuss the role of the writer in depicting and challenging the status quo in turbulent times with Scottish author and editor Andrew O’Hagan.
