Vancouver International Writers & Readers Festival

I've just put together my ticket order for the Vancouver Writersfest that happens every October. It's so exciting! I plan to go to 10 of the events. My sweetie and I even changed our flight home so that we could stay until the very end on Sunday; couldn't miss Ali Smith!

This will be the fifth time that I attend -- I love love love this festival. There are always such great authors in the line-up. This year I'm excited about hearing Emma Donoghue, Lynda Barry (she's giving a writing workshop!), Ivan Coyote, Kate Pullinger, Kamila Shamsie, Andrea Levy, Yann Martel, Martha Brooks, Rebecca James, Erin Moure, David Mitchell, Drew Hayden Taylor and, of course, Ali Smith. Yeehaw!
