The Comox Valley Writers Society invites the public to an evening of open discussion with this year’s Haig-Brown Writer-in-Residence, Wayne Grady.
Grady is not only a well-known author, but he is also an editor, translator and teacher of writing. He has written 14 books of fiction and non-fiction, including books on natural history, science, travel and personal essays. One of his books, Tree: A Life Story, was co-authored with David Suzuki, and was nominated for a BC Book Award for Book of the Year. His novel Emancipation Day was long-listed for the Scotiabank-Giller Prize in 2013, and won the Amazon.ca First Novel Award. He is also a Governor General’s award-winning translator, having translated 15 novels from the French.
Join the CVWS on Thursday, Jan. 21 at Valley View Elementary School in Courtenay if you wish to learn more about the craft of writing. This free event begins at 7 p.m. in the school library.
