Word On The Street – Book and Magazine fair at Library Square!
It's the annual Word on the Street Book and Magazine fair. Come to Library Square on Sunday Sept 24th.
There's lots of activities, performers, readers, book sellers, displays. check out the program: http://www.thewordonthestreet.ca/van_events.php
One of my favorite annual events is Haiku Night in Canada. It's
kind of a slam poetry event, where performers/writers “face-off”
against each other, go through elimination rounds, and end up a winner.
My friend Fiona Tinwei Lam will be there reading. She is the
author of a poetry collection titled “Intimate Distances.”
The wrap-up event for One Book One Vancouver, for the Vancouver Public
Library, will take place. Last year, it was highly emotionally
charged because we had just discovered that Joy Kogawa's childhood home
was threatened with demolition. And Joy's book Obasan, was the
2005 OBOV choice.
