On the last Sunday in September, New Star Books will be among the bibliophiles at WORD Vancouver (previously Word On the Street), when the literary commmunity takes over the streets to the East and West of our main library. Come on down to meet the presses, browse the book bargains, check out some author appearances, and enjoy the the people watching. All events are free.
New Star’s own George Stanley and Peter Culley will be among those authors reading from recent works. Culley will be reading from his brand-new Parkway, and Stanley from After Desire, published in spring. Pay a visit to New Star’s booth, where we’ll be selling backlist bargoons at a deep discount, as well as the brand-new titles at a considerably less-deep discount.
The big bazaar is on Sunday, September 29, at the Central Branch of the Vancouver Public Library, but the preceding 3 days offer a plethora of readings and workshops around town: check out the WORD website for more info, and consider volunteering — WORD is still looking for some more hands on deck. To volunteer for WORD Vancouver, contact Alina Wilson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
