Whistler Writers Festival

READING EVENT 10: Writers of Non-Fiction

A festival favourite, this event showcases the diversity that is non-fiction writing, from memoir to biography, investigative reporting to creative non-fiction. Panel and audience discussion will centre around readings, and the process and approach to bringing particular subject matter and experiences to life. Featuring: Shelley O’Callaghan (How Deep is the Lake: A Century at Chilliwack Lake), Teva Harrison (In-Between Days), Briony Penn (The Real Thing: The Natural History of Ian McTaggart Cowan) and Yvonne Blomer (Sugar Ride: Cycling from Hanoi to Kuala Lumpur) and the non-fiction winner of the Whistler Independent Book Prize.

Moderator: Leslie Anthony
