READING EVENT 13: When Reality Looks Like Fiction, How do you Write Your Way to the Truth?

By Whistler Writers Festival (other events)

Saturday, October 14 2017 8:00 PM 11:00 PM PDT

Doug Saunders, Leslie Anthony, Claudia Casper and Gurjinder Basran.  The festival’s gala reading event sees Grant Lawrence lead a conversation about why authors choose fiction or non-fiction to tell a particular story. And, in the case of our guest authors, why they choose a particular kind of story, for example: existential threats to humanity, the threat to global order, or the future of the health of our planet? In times of suppression and avoidance, how do fiction and non-fiction authors find creative ways to keep facts and truth on the front burner—and is there a difference in their ability to do so?

Some Assembly Required brings the live music to this year’s signature reading event. Comprising musicians from Whistler and Vancouver, Some Assembly Required plays ska, reggae, blues and gypsy jazz with a healthy mix of originals and covers. Stephen Vogler, guitar, mandolin, vocals; Geeta Das, trumpet, saxophone, vocals; Tony Moser, bass; and Dean Feser, percussion.

Moderator: Grant Lawrence
