Venerable author and noted fun guy George Bowering continues his travels this month, reading from one of his four new books (no kidding!), 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.
At 6 PM on October 20 (that’s tomorrow!), Bowering will appear at the Vancouver Writers Festival on Granville Island in Vancouver, BC. He’ll be interviewed by fellow Talon poet and BC literary luminary Colin Browne. Don’t miss it!
More Bowering readings not to miss this month: 12 noon on October 26 at the Ottawa Writers’ Festival (event at Christ Church Cathedral on Sparks Street); 7 PM on October 28 at McNally Robinson in Winnipeg; October 29 at the University of Manitoba Archives, also in Winnipeg; and again in Vancouver on the evening of November 7 at Western Front, where Bowering jointly celebrates his birthday with Glenn Lewis.
