Show Notes

Attending festivals and large events in person may be in our distant future, but one of the largest literary events in North America has found a way to pivot with new programming and a virtual lineup. Join me in my discussion with the Vancouver Writers Festival Artistic Director Leslie Hurtig and find out about what special events she has in store for this spring.  Hello, Ethan Hawke fans! Learn about some new first-time authors and how Leslie finds the time to incorporate reading into her everyday routine. I also reveal a favourite crowdsourced photography site and share a memorable new essay by beloved author Ann Patchett.
