Long Story Short, Kathy Page and C.P. Boyko

Join Biblioasis tomorrow evening at The Cultch in Vancouver for a round of short stories from two of  Canada's finest writers in the genre.

The Vancouver Sun describes them as "a pair of restless authors... drawn to experimentation with content, form, and tone, and who are (a reader could surmise) rebelling against a literary orthodoxy that holds up stalwart realism as the true writer’s best and only friend."

Kathy Page, nominee for the Governor General's Award and the Orange Prize, presents what Barbara Gowdy calls a "vibrant, startlingly imaginative collection" in Paradise and Elsewhere, while the Journey Prize-winning C.P. Boyko (Novelists, 2014) will have you rolling in the aisles with what Russell Banks calls "proudly, gloriously, gleefully old-fashioned" literary satire.

Hosted by Cynthia Flood, recently shortlisted for the Ethel Wilson Fiction Prize, Long Story Short will begin at 7pm and is an evening not to be missed.

As always, admission is free.
