On January 26th, I was the honoured guest of the Vancouver Is Awesome Book Club held at the fabulous Waldorf Hotel. (If you haven’t checked out their website yet, you totally should. They’re doing great work.)
A cosy and enthusiastic group gathered for an event that was definitely a departure from a traditional reading—in fact, there was no reading! It was a casual discussion in the round about process and all manner of writerly and literary things. It was a hoot—I had two glasses of wine and ended up saying far more that I should have. But what else is new? Thanks to Lizzy and everyone who came out and made it such a fun night!
The next one is coming soon, and the book is The Beggar’s Garden, the brand-new collection of stories from Michael Christie. I can’t wait to read it—and then get my ass down to the next Book Club to drink more wine and hear all about it.
