Biblioasis in British Columbia

For those west-coast Biblioasis-o-philes, Stephen Henighan will be reading in Vancouver and Victoria this week. Henighan will be reading from his latest critical book, A Report on the Afterlife of Culture on Thursday, June 5th at Pulp Fiction (2422 Main Street in Vancouver at 6:30pm). This event is co-sponsored by Geist magazine, with Stephen Osborne acting as host. Stephen will then be crossing over to Victoria for an event at the Black Stilt Coffee House on Friday evening, starting at 7 pm. (1633 Hillside Avenue #103 in Victoria) So, if you like thought provoking cultural and literary criticism, please come on out and get your dander up.

On Sunday, Biblioasis authors Lorna Jackson and Patricia Young will be launching their spring titles in Victoria at 7pm at the Fernwood Inn. (1302 Gladstone Avenue). Patricia will be launching Here Comes the Moonbathers, her first collection of poetry in nearly a decade. Lorna will be launching her collection of linked fictions Flirt: The Interviews. Also launching this evening, fellow Victorians Bill Gaston (The Order of Good Cheer (Anansi)), Dede Crane (The Cult of Quick Repair (Coteau)), and Steve Galloway (The Cellist of Sarajevo (Knopf)). Quite a literary line up, so please come out if you are in the area this Sunday.
