The North Shore Writers Festival is back for its 16th year  with a fantastic lineup of events and activities for readers and writers. This year’s festival will be held on Friday, April 17, and Saturday, April 18, at West Vancouver Memorial Library.

This year’s festival features a host of Canadian literary stars, including John Vaillant, Aislinn Hunter, Doretta Lau, Zsuzsi Gartner and Heather O’Neill; CBC radio personalities and authors, Grant Lawrence and JJ Lee; a book fair showcasing local authors; and a trio of poets. With workshops, panel discussions and readings, there’s something for everyone at this jam-packed literary weekend. The festival is free with no tickets or registration required (seats are available on a first-come, first-served basis), and is brought to you by the three libraries on the North Shore: North Vancouver District, North Vancouver City and West Vancouver Memorial.
