Offsite Book Sales – Refuse: CanLit in Ruins

February 27, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

We’ll be selling books offsite for an event in honour of Refuse: CanLit in Ruins at the Central location of the Vancouver Public Library, 350 W Georgia Street.

CanLit, or Canadian literature, has been at the heart of several recent public controversies.

Why? Because CanLit is breaking open to reveal the accepted injustices at its heart.

It is imperative that these public controversies and the issues that sparked them be subject to careful and thorough discussion and critique.

Refuse: CanLit in Ruins brings writers and thinkers together to address the changing face of CanLit with a focus on what it means to refuse the status quo and imagine new possibilities.

Moderated by Hannah McGregor. Panelists include Jessica Johns, Keith Maillard, Shazia Hafiz Ramji, and Erika Thorkelson.

In partnership with Book*hug
