Venerable author and noted fun guy George Bowering will travel the nation this fall to read from his new book, Writing the Okanagan – a collection of fiction and non-fiction, written over many years and now collected into one volume, about and set in his home region.
Throughout October 2015, in his 80th year – and with few signs of slowing down – George Bowering will tour libraries, bookstores, and festivals across the country reading from this book as well as three other books he publishes this fall (no kidding!).
Readers residing in the Okanagan region should take special note of his many Okanagan-based stops along the way:
Tour dates in the Okanagan:
Readers elsewhere in the country can look forward to appearances in other provinces as well, and in George’s current city, Vancouver.

By Carl Peters
On Meta-Talon today, please enjoy the full text of the presentation given by Carl Peters at the Modern Languages Association convention in New York City on January 7, 2018. This talk responds to the question posed in the MLA convention session Rhetoric in Post-Factual Times: how to perform textual analysis in a time when facts are no longer the marker of good argumentation. (Peters’s talk is also related to his work on Stein; Peters is recently the author of Studies in Description: Reading Gertrude Stein’s Tender Buttons.)
