You will love this unforgettable evening of refined entertainment, exquisite cuisine and with stories and poetry from 7 different authors -- a literary event to top all literary events on Cortes Island!

The host of our event is CBC's Grant Lawrence, author of “Adventures in Solitude: What Not to Wear to a Naked Potluck,” a compilation of tales about his summers growing up in Desolation Sound. The six other authors are: organic farmer and author, Michael Ableman; Governor General Award-winning Jan Zwicky; author and co-founder of Greenpeace International, Rex Weyler; and local authors, Monica Nawrocki, Judy Williams and 13-year old Tara Warkentin.

Three seafood tapas, beer tasters from Driftwood and Townsite micro-breweries, great music from Luc Bugeaud and Mixed Greens, and a plethora of door prizes will top off the evening at the Cove Restaurant!

On May 26th, join us for a gala celebration of two years of literacy outreach on Cortes Island. It’s a night not to be missed!
