Wednesdays just got a little more literate in Vangroover, as Sean Cranbury of Books on the Radio organizes a new literacious salon every Wednesday in February: the Real Vancouver Writers’ Series. Save time: put it in your calendar now and avoid guilt-ridden “I shoulda’s” later. You can see the entire lineup for the full month on the website, and it’s extremely highly bitchin, to say the least (which is never my first choice; I’ve never gotten over getting paid by the word. As you can tell).
Here is the full announcement, swiped from Facebook [links mine]; $5 at the door gets you hours of nutritious and intoxicating food for thought:
