Whistler Writers Festival | Oct. 12 -15, 2017


Whistler Writers festival

Thursday October 12th will feature Comedy Quickies, a night of bite-sized comedy that takes writers’ humorous humdingers to the stage. Cash and prizes will be awarded for Best Comedy Writing, and our audience will choose the Best Act.

On Friday night our Chefs’ Reception will feature Caren McSherry, cookbook author and owner of the Gourmet Warehouse, local chef, Leah Garrad-Cole, author of It all Begins with Food, and Ben Greenberg, of Night Owl Brewing. There will be samples of appetizers and beer to try and you’ll be able to meet these authors and hear them discuss their featured recipes and books. The Literary Cabaret will follow the Reception. Hosted by local scribe and musician Stephen Vogler, the night combines readings from some of Canada’s best-loved authors, accompanied by live music. This year’s cabaret features David Chariandy, Leanne Dunic, Terry Fallis, Steven Heighton, Helen Humphreys, Grant Lawrence, Suzette Mayr, Sandra Ridley, Mark Leiren-Young, and Terry Watada. The winners of the Whistler Independent Book Awards will be announced just before the Literary Cabaret.

Our popular Saturday reading events are back, each featuring authors of different genres: Poetry, Non-Fiction and Fiction. In addition, we’ve added two literary salons this year for book clubs and will encourage you to read our feature authors’ books because the authors will be attending the salons. Our first salon on Friday October 13th will feature Frances Itani’s book, That’s My Baby. Our Saturday book salon will feature the Globe and Mail’s Doug Saunders and his book, Maximum Canada: Why 35 Million Canadians Aren’t Enough. Our Saturday Crime Writers Lunch reading, moderated by our very own Feet Banks, will host authors John MacLachlan Gray, Sheena Kamal, Michael Redhill, Alisa Smith and Jenny D. Williams.

On Saturday night, a special main stage event will see CBC’s Grant Lawrence in conversation with the Globe and Mail’s Doug Saunders, Leslie Anthony, Claudia Casper and Gurjinder Basran. Doug Saunders will join us again on Sunday, October 15th to host our Sunday brunch and discussion with award winning authors Barbara Gowdy, Monia Mazigh, Frances Itani, Michael Harris and Lee Maracle. For the early risers and those who like a rousing walk in the morning, Grant will host a walk and reading with Terry Fallis, Shelley O’Callaghan, and Mark Leiren-Young.

Friday features a full day of publishing sessions. Join us for a workshop about publishing alternatives. This will be followed by a discussion with publishers about the industry’s challenges. The afternoon will offer an opportunity to sit down one-on-one with a publisher to hone your pitching skills. Eight publishers will participate in this event and together they represent all genres.
