This is a quick note to let you know that although four Festival events have sold out (Terry Fallis, Miriam Toews, Richard Wagamese and Chris Turner), 17 events have not!
There are just a handful of tickets left for Steven Galloway so if you are hoping to hear the author of The Cellist of Sarajevo and The Confabulist, his latest book, on Friday, August 15 at 7 pm, you should order your tickets soon.
Friday, Saturday and Sunday passes are sold out but there are still a few full Festival passes available. The Festival pass gives you entry to all events, including those that are marked "sold out".
We've been adding links to articles, reviews and audio/video clips on some of the authors' pages on the website. We hope these give you a sense of their work and style and serve to introduce you to a writer you may not be familiar with.
Courtney Lamb and I are in the office Monday to Friday, 9 am to 4:30 pm. You can reach us at 604-885-9631 or 1-800-565-9631.
It's just 8 weeks away!
