New Star Books at WORD Vancouver


Library Square, site of WORD VancouverOn 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 vol­un­teer­ingWORD is still look­ing for some more hands on deck.
